"Jeffrey Cramer, curator at the Thoreau Institute at Walden Woods, makes selections from the journal and accompanies each with insightful commentary. As autumn gives way to winter, one thinks of Thoreau's work as a great naturalist, but his words about art, life, politics, friendship--and even his neighbors--make a lovely book to read, sitting by a cozy fire."--Elizabeth Taylor, "Chicago Tribune" (Editor's Choice)--Elizabeth Taylor"Chicago Tribune" (11/10/2007)
"'Say's I to myself' should be the motto of my journal."--Henry D. Thoreau [11 November 1851]
