Transports the reader to the places in New England that were most important to Henry David Thoreau in 10 vigorous essays that range from Walden Pond to the shores of Cape Cod and the heights of Mount Katahdin in northern Maine. The author recounts his first-hand experiences and compares them to Thoreau's from 150 years earlier. He also compares their observations on the places themselves and their reflections on the causes of change, all with ample use of excerpts from Thoreau's writings. Includes a chronology of Thoreau's travels; a When You Go section of practical information for each chapter; and new sketches and maps.
Images From the Past Publishing, 2007. 240 pp. Paperback. A DVD is also available separately.
