Walden describes Thoreau's domestic ecomony, the wildlife, the few visitors to his remote wooden hut, and his reflections on the quality of human life in an age of growing materialism and of a prevailing work ethic. It has become a poignant critique of the values of Thoreau's society which retains its relevance today.

One of the least-known of all Thoreau's works, and one of the most heavily criticised, it still remains the work of the one of the most original authors and philosophers in America's past. Chronicling his discovery along with shores of Cape Cod, he spends his nights in lighthouses, fishing huts and farms, observing the variety of life and death that surrounds the sea. 319 pages, softcover.

Thoreau's account of his 1839 boat trip is a finely crafted tapestry of travel writings, essays, and lyrical poetry. An invaluable companion to Walden, it also stands alone as one of the most remarkable literary achievements of the nineteenth century.

    Thoreau's Wild Apples first appeared in the Atlantic Monthly in November of 1862. The book begins with a short history of the apple tree, tracing its path from Ancient Greece to America. Thoreau saw the apple as a perfect mirror of man, and eloquently lamented where they both were heading.

    Originally published in the October 1862 issue of the Atlantic Monthly, Thoreau's "Autumnal Tints" was written at a time when the bright-hued New England autumn had not "made a deep impression on our literature yet" and was "scarcely remembered by the majority from year to year." Perfectly capturing the facts and delight of the season, Thoreau notes the red maple as the first to turn in September, the Elms in October, the falling leaves in mid-late October-whilst recounting his raptures at the leaves at his feet after the rain, the still-bright colors seen on the Common as he writes, and the glory of each hue. 62 pages, softcover.

    The book contains not only Thoreau's evocative renderings of the primitive forest but an impassioned protest against its despoilment in the name of commerce and sport, which even in the 1850s threatened to deprive Americans of that wilderness in which he found 'the preservation of the world.'

      Thoreau's Civil Disobedience has inspired social revolutionaries from Ghandi to Martin Luther King Jr. Originally delivered as a lecture and later transformed into an essay, this monumental work was written in response to what Thoreau saw as two particularly odious and unbearable social evils supported by the government: slavery and the Mexican-American war. This collection also includes his essays "Slavery in Massachusetts," "A Plea for Captain John Brown," "Walking," and "Life without Principle." 90 pages, softcover.
