The Daily Henry David Thoreau: A Year of Quotes From the Man Who Lived in Season - Henry David Thoreau, Laura Dassow Walls The Daily Henry David Thoreau: A Year of Quotes From the Man Who Lived in Season - Henry David Thoreau, Laura Dassow Walls

Embodies, in small compass, Henry David Thoreau's ambition to "live in season" -- to turn with the living sundial of the world and, by attuning ourselves to nature, heal our modern sense of discontinuity with our surroundings. Drawn from the full range of Thoreau's journals and published writings and arranged according to season, this collection allows us to discover the endless variation and surprise to be found in the repetitions of mundane cycles. Thoreau's world lives on in his writing so that we, too, may discover, even in a fallen world, a beauty worth defending.
