This inviting selection of Thoreau's best flower writings is arranged by day of the year and accompanied by Thoreau's philosophical speculations and his observations of the weather and of other plants and animals. They illuminate the author's spirituality, his belief in nature's correspondence with the human soul, and his sense that anticipation -- of spring, of flowers yet to bloom -- renews our connection with the earth and with immortality. The book features more than 200 of the black-and-white drawings originally created by Barry Moser for his first illustrated book, Flowering Plants of Massachusetts. This volume also presents "Thoreau as Botanist," an essay by Ray Angelo, the leading authority on the flowering plants of Concord. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin 293 (Spring 2016), pp. 11-12.
Yale University Press, 2016, Hardcover. 300 pp.
