Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.
Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.
In Wildness is the preservation of the world.
Surely joy is the condition of life.
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.

Thoreau The Land Surveyor - Patrick Chura
Placing Thoreau's surveying in its historical context, "Thoreau the Land Surveyor" explains the cultural and ideological implications of surveying work in the mid-19th Century. This insightful study shows how Thoreau's profession as a surveyor impacted his environmental sensibility as well as his literary works; Chura's book shows that Thoreau's manuscript surveys and corresponding field notes are themselves worthy of literary analysis.
