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)
