About the Author

Jeffrey Cramer is curator of collections, the Thoreau Institute at Walden Woods.

"Those who have long relished this earthy, adventurous book, as well as those who are discovering it for the first time, have reason to rejoice over this new edition, which has been so meticulously annotated by Jeffrey Cramer."--Scott Russell Sanders, author of A Conservationist Manifesto.--Scott Russell Sanders

"Fresh access to The Maine Woods alone would justify this finely organized edition. Thanks to Jeffrey Cramer's scrupulous, devoted elucidation, we now have Thoreau's whole word- and thought-horde, as this great writer, steeped in natural history, ventures between vivid detail and rapture. Everything comes alive in these newly revealing pages, from the 'Vast, Titanic, inhuman Nature' Thoreau finds in climbing Katahdin to his respect for Maine's Native Americans."--John Felstiner, author of Can Poetry Save the Earth: A Field Guide to Nature Poems

--John Felstiner

"Having given us his beautifully annotated selections from Thoreau's journals, Jeffrey Cramer turns his attention to The Maine Woods. It is with great pleasure that we get to follow Thoreau down rivers, up mountains, and after moose, peaking with his famous experience of 'contact!' atop Mount Katahdin. Cramer, as our secondary guide, provides us with context, insights, and hard facts, annotations that are, to paraphrase Thoreau, clear, condensed and nut-hard. A joy to read."--David Gessner, University of North Carolina at Wilmington

--David Gessner
"Cramer has produced there of these handsome editions of Thoreau's work: a selection of the journals, Walden, and The Maine Woods. Thanks to the detailed glosses Cramer provides, each volume is a vade mecum for the Thoreauvian. . . . They are treasure troves of valuable information."--Robert E./I>--Robert E. Burkholder "The New England Quarterly "
