• Hero to environmentalists and ecologists, and a profound thinker on humanity's happiness, Henry David Thoreau was one of the strongest shapers of the American character in the 19th century.This 1849 book, written while Thoreau was living at Walden Pond, is ostensibly a travel book, written to commemorate an 1839 river journey he took with his brother, John, from Massachusetts to New Hampshire. But the trip is only the framework upon which Thoreau hangs some of his most provocative thoughts on poetry, history, religion, dreams, and the passing of a slower way of life with the advent of the Industrial Revolution, the evidence of which he witnessed from the rivers.While not Thoreau's best-known work, *A Week* may be his most important, a beautifully determined attempt to understand the past and reconcile it with the future that continues to move readers today.Writer and philosopher HENRY DAVID THOREAU (1817-1862) was born in Concord, Massachusetts, and educated at Harvard University. His writings on human nature, materialism, and the natural world rank him among the most influential thinkers of American literature.

  • 2016 Reprint of 1854 Edition. This is perhaps Thoreau’s most famous transcendentalist work. The text is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. Thoreau used this time to write his first book, “A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers.” The experience later inspired “Walden”, in which Thoreau compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development. By immersing himself in nature, Thoreau hoped to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection. Simple living and self-sufficiency were Thoreau's other goals, and the whole project was inspired by transcendentalist philosophy, a central theme of the American Romantic Period.

  • In 1846, Thoreau took the first of his three journeys into the woods of Maine, and each of his excursions, he pondered the allure of the wild, the impact of humanity, and on being a man moving through nature. Here, his thoughts on all three trips are gathering in one volume-first published in 1864-that is considered by some one of the best examples of outdoors writing ever.From the quiet of a lakeside to the campfire stewing of cranberries to surprising encounters with Indians, Thoreau offers us an intimate look at a landscape that is now all but gone, or radically different. His insights on his experiences, which have made him a hero to environmentalists and ecologists, are even more powerful today than perhaps they were when he first put them down on paper.Writer and philosopher HENRY DAVID THOREAU (1817-1862) was born in Concord, Massachusetts, and educated at Harvard University. His writings on human nature, materialism, and the natural world rank him among the most influential thinkers of American literature.

  • Hero to environmentalists and ecologists, and an insightful thinker on humanity's happiness, Henry David Thoreau was one of the strongest shapers of the American character in the 19th century.The writer himself once said, "I am eager to report the glory of the universe," and in this delightful work-not published till 1865, after his death-he regales us with tales of his time on Massachusetts' Cape Cod, to where he journeyed four times between 1849 and 1857. While still profoundly philosophical, this is Thoreau's lightest work, full of amusing and reflective anecdotes about the wildlife, human inhabitants, and fishing industry that characterized the island of the day.Charming and provocative, *Cape Cod* will be cherished by readers of modern philosophies and armchair travelers alike.Writer and philosopher HENRY DAVID THOREAU (1817-1862) was born in Concord, Massachusetts, and educated at Harvard University. His writings on human nature, materialism, and the natural world rank him among the most influential thinkers of American literature.
