Description
 
The final harvest of our great nature writer’s last years, “Wild Fruits” present Thoreau’s distinctly American gospel -- a sacramental vision of nature in which “the tension between Thoreau the naturalist & Thoreau the missionary for nature’s wonders invigorates nearly every page” (“Time”). In transcribing the 150-year-old manuscript’s cryptic handwriting & complex notations, Thoreau specialist Bradley Dean has performed a “heroic feat of decipherment” (“Booklist”) to bring this great work to light. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout with line drawings of the natural life Thoreau considered on his walks. “This wonderful book is both a practical & a philosophical field guide to the natural gifts of the American countryside.”
