Very similar in style to Walden, and in fact written while he stayed at Walden Pond, this account chronicles Throeau's 1830 boat trip. In it, he weaves together travel writing, essays on religion, history, and lyrical poetry, as well as his own unique philosophy. Download and start listening now!

    " a wonderfully sloppier, more circular version of Walden "

    " This book drags in the middle when he laments for a certain kind of friend that he wished he had. "

    " A much underrated work by Thoreau. It's just a leisurely (much like the trip itself) journey, easy to lose one's self in. "

    " Reads like a rehearsal for Walden, which, I suppose, it is. What a pain in the ass he must have been! "

    " Another wordy tome, peppered with occasionally interesting (weird) things that people did in those days - like drinking rain water out of the puddles in holes made from horses hooves.... Hmmmmm. "

    " With due respect, this book felt like a month! Some of the language us beautiful, both much if it was like a slog through a swamp! There is a reason why publishers require an editor's review. Thoreau was a brilliant sel-published writer who desperately needed a good editor. Word to the wise:-) "

    " Truth to tell, I skimmed over the passages of Thoreau's own verse. "

About the Author
Author Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862) was an American essayist, naturalist, philosopher, and poet. Born at Concord, Massachusetts, and educated at Harvard, he began his career as a teacher. Through his older friend and neighbor, Ralph Waldo Emerson, he became a part of the Transcendentalist circle and one of that group’s most eloquent spokespersons. He is best known for his book, Walden, and his essay, “On the Duty of Civil Disobedience.”
