THOREAU ON LAND NATURE'S CANVAS Edited by Joseph Valentine
This elegant volume chronicles Thoreau's fascination with nature, from his well-known reflections on Walden to an unexpected meeting with loggers in the woods: "No doubt our employment is more alike than we suspect, and we are each serving the great Master's needs more than our own." He shows a Thoreau much broader in his interests and sympathies than most of us imagine.
Henry David Thoreau was born in Concord, MA in 1817, and is best know for his influential work, Walden, which was published by Ticknor & Fields in 1854.
