"Henry David Thoreau made three trips to the rugged and mostly unexplored Maine woods, where one 'might live and die and never hear of the United States.' He climbed mountains, canoed, and recorded his acute observations on the wildlife, weather, terrain, and the nature of the people he met along the way, eloquently capturing the wilder side of America"--From publisher.

A phenomenal book! Although bibliophiles may dislike some of the unevenness, bosky prose, and sometimes ragged style, everyone will appreciate the unaffectedness of the book, like a friend's face with its moles and distinctive lines; the book grows on one as one proceeds in reading it. Although classified as a nature book, its better classed as a travel book. Descriptions of people, places, and episodes are great; reflections and mini-meditations naturally bloom in the text, some are moral insights that took philosophers over a hundred years to give due consideration to (especially those on pages 163-164). The appendices are fascinating in their own right: they include native's names for flora and fauna.
