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.
A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers
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.

More by Henry David Thoreau
Edited by Wesley T. Mott, Thoreau on Water chronicles Thoreau's fascination with nature, from Walden to other, less-famous writings. From his simple observations to deep thoughts on the workings of the natural world, this book elegantly draws together Thoreau's mystical fascination with water. 100 pages, softcover.
Thoreau's Walking was written shortly before his death in May, 1862. In this charming little book, Thoreau treats his subjects as if it were a walk itself. As he wanders, so do his thoughts.
Thoreau's famous essay, Walking, originally published in 1862, is the source of inspiration for the pages of this journal. In the pages within there is plenty of open space to record your inner journey as you walk or rest.
The ideal book of portable wisdom from America's quintessential nature writer. Thoreau's celebrated essay shows how anyone can more fully appreciate nature's wonders by "sauntering" in tranquillity with senses wide open.
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.
Edited by Wesley T. Mott, Thoreau on Land chronicles Thoreau's fascination with nature, from Walden to other, less-famous writings. From his simple observations to deep thoughts on the workings of the natural world, this book elegantly draws together Thoreau's views on the outdoors. 142 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 journal of 1851 reveals profound ideas and observations in the making, including wonderful writing on the natural history of Concord.
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.

In the publication of The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau, Princeton University press joins university presses throughout the United States in making the works of major American writers available in comprehensive scholarly editions. Although Thoreau has earned a national and international reputation as a naturalist, social critic and philosopher of human rights, as well as a literary artist of the first rank, no scholarly edition of his complete writings has been previously been undertaken. In addition to newly edited texts of his major published works, the edition will include his poetry, translations, correspondence, college essays, and unfinished late natural history projects, "Wild Fruits" and " The Dispersion of Seeds." Thoreau's Journal--the private record of his experiences, the source of his many writings, and a unique literary document in itself--will be printed for the first time in its original, unrevised form, including many previously unpublished passages and notebooks.
This Volume, Journal 4, covers the years 1851-1852, and includes textual, historical and editorial notes. 787 pages, indexed. Cloth-bound hardcover.
