Grant, Steve, Editor Daily Observations, Thoreau on the Days of the Year. University of Massachusetts Press, 1st Edition, 110 pp. Paperback.
One of the latest in the Thoreau Society's Spirit of Thoreau Series produced in association with the University of Massachusetts Press. The brief, handsomly presented books in this series offer the thoughts of a great writer on a variety of topics, some that we readily associate with him, some that may be surprising. Each volume includes original engravings by renowned illustrator and book artist Barry Moser.
Culled from his published books, essays, letters and journal, this book looks at a wide variety of thoughts and observations for each day of the year. Some are whimsical, others serius and thought provoking, but all are interesting.
