By Henry David Thoreau, H. Daniel Peck

Thoreau's account of his 1839 boat journey is a finely crafted tapestry of trip writing, essays, and lyrical poetry. Thoreau interweaves descriptions of ordinary phenomena, the agricultural panorama, and native characters with digressions on literature and philosophy, the local American and Puritian histories of recent England, the Bhagavad Gita, the imperfections of Christianity, and plenty of different subjects.

even though it stocks the various issues in Thoreau's vintage WALDEN, every week bargains another point of view on his analaysis of the connection among nature and tradition.
