Book Description:
A selection of ruminative nature writing on walking and the beauty of New England, here Thoreau s characteristically wide ranging and philosophical style offers a multitude of fascinating observations. Excursions presents Thoreau s most studied and expansive collection of writing on the natural world. An early advocate of conservationism, he discusses here, in mesmerising prose, the complex but essential relationship between man and nature. This edition includes a remarkable Biographical Sketch by Thoreau s great contemporary and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson. This choice collection of Thoreau s nature writing includes the essays The Succession of Forest Trees , Walking , and Autumnal Tints each one an explorative reach into the heart of the natural world. Thoreau s travels through the woods of New England are not only physical journeys through some of the most awe inspiring landscapes in America but also spiritual excursions of the mind.
