DescriptionAn exploration of the history, nature, landscape, and literature of one of America's most iconic places
This is the first guidebook to Henry David Thoreau's most defining place, visited by half a million people each year and widely known as the fountainhead of America's environmental consciousness.
Using this guide, both armchair readers and trail-walkers alike can amble around the pond's shoreline, pausing at fifteen special places to learn about people, historic events, and the natural world. Thoreau will be a constant companion via quotes from Walden. Stop by stop, the place of his book will merge with the book of his place.
Abundantly illustrated with photographs, drawings, and maps, this guide is a must-have for a meaningful, engaging tour of Walden Pond as well as a souvenir of a visit. Special Thanks Concord Free Public Library
