Henry David Thoreau: A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers; Walden; The Maine Woods; Cape Cod

Written by Henry David Thoreau

– Henry David Thoreau wrote four full-length works, collected here for the first time in a single digital volume. Subtly interweaving natural observation, personal experience, and historical lore, they reveal his brilliance not only as a writer, but as a naturalist, scholar, historian, poet, and philosopher.

– “A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers” (1849) is based on a boat trip taken with his brother from Concord, Massachusetts to Concord, New Hampshire.

– “Walden,” (1854) one of America’s greatest books, is at once a personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, manual of self-reliance, and masterpiece of style.

– “The Maine Woods” (1864) combines close observation of the unexplored Maine wilderness with a far-sighted plea for conservation.

– “Cape Cod” (1865) is a brilliant and unsentimental account of survival on a barren peninsula in the face of hostile elements, historical change, and natural decay.

– This meticulous digital edition from Heritage Publishing is a faithful reproduction of the original texts.
