The Heart of Thoreau's Journals - Henry David Thoreau, Odell Shepard
The Heart of Thoreau's Journals - Henry David Thoreau, Odell Shepard
Our Price: $11.95

Shepard's selection from the voluminous journals is recognized as masterful and as the best way to become acquainted with the full Thoreau and his intellectual development, short of reading the entire span of the journals themselves. Selected for their thought, their beauty, or their self-revelation, these passages from 1837-1861 have been grouped in order to correspond as closely as possible with the main events of Thoreau's inner and outer life.

I to Myself: An Annotated Selection from the Journal of Henry David Thoreau - Jeffrey S. Cramer, ed.
Our Price: $23.00

At the urging of his friend and mentor, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thoreau began keeping a journal in 1837, coming to a halt only in 1861, shortly before his death. The final product encompasses 14 volumes and runs to more than two million words.
"Making selections form the entirety of the journal, editor Jeffrey Cramer presents all aspects of Thoreau: writer, thinker, naturalist, social reformer, neighbor, friend. The relation of journal passages to Thoreau's other writings receives special emphasis. Cramer's annotations add to the reader's enjoyment and understanding, as he provides notes on the biographical, historical, and geographical contexts of the author's life. No other single volume edition offers such a full picture of Henry Thoreau's life and work." (from the dust jacket)
