Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Thoreau's (1817-62) meditation in the woods--an icon of US nature literature--is presented here in a volume small enough to carry in a jacket pocket, enhanced with wood engravings by Michael McCurdy and with a ribbon for keeping place. Among his topics are sounds, the bean field, higher laws, brute neighbors, former inhabitants and winter visitors, and the pond in winter. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

As the favorite book of generations of readers, Walden has become part of the American landscape. Michael McCurdy's woodblock engravings bring the text to life and illuminate the spirit of Thoreau's prose. Also included is a foreword by noted author and environmentalist Terry Tempest Williams, who reflects upon Thoreau's message that as we explore our world and ourselves, we draw ever closer to the truth of our connectedness.

About the Author
