Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Henry David Thoreau's large body of work, only three books were published during his lifetime. In fact much of his greatest work was left behind in his journals and other manuscripts. Drawing on these writings, the editors of the Thoreau Society have distilled books that are as close as possible in spirit to those Thoreau might have seen through to publication had he lived long enough. These are, in essence, new books by perhaps the most original writer and thinker in American history.

This elegant volume chronicles Thoreau's fascination with nature, from his well-known reflections on Walden to an unexpected meeting with loggers in the woods: "No doubt our employment is more alike than we suspect, and we are each serving the great Master's needs more than our own".

Synopsis:

The Spirit of Thoreau series is a fresh new collection of Thoreau's best writing and thinking on various themes, drawn from both unpublished and published sources.

THOREAU ON LAND NATURE'S CANVAS Edited by Joseph Valentine

This elegant volume chronicles Thoreau's fascination with nature, from his well-known reflections on Walden to an unexpected meeting with loggers in the woods: "No doubt our employment is more alike than we suspect, and we are each serving the great Master's needs more than our own." He shows a Thoreau much broader in his interests and sympathies than most of us imagine.
