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.
