Book Description:
Henry David Thoreau wrote four full length works, collected here for the first time in a single volume. Subtly interweaving natural observation, personal experience, and historical lore, they reveal his brilliance not only as a writer, but as a naturalist, scholar, historian, poet, and philosopher. 'A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers' is based on a boat trip taken with his brother from Concord, Massachusetts to Concord, New Hampshire. 'Walden,' one of America's great books, is at once a personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, manual of self reliance, and masterpiece of style. 'The Maine Woods' and 'Cape Cod' portray landscapes changing irreversibly even as he wrote. The first combines close observation of the unexplored Maine wilderness with a far sighted plea for conservation; the second is a brilliant and unsentimental account of survival on a barren peninsula in the face of hostile elements, historical change, and natural decay.
