THOREAU ON WATER REFLECTING HEAVEN Edited by Robert France
Thoreau's most famous book is named for a pond, and he had an almost mystical fascination with water. As he wrote in his journal, "Water indeed reflects heaven because my mind does -- such is its own serenity -- its transparency -- & stillness." THOREAU ON WATER brings together his finest writing on one of his greatest passions.
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.
