Almost all the works by Henry David Thoreau are based on his own experiences in the woods and the natural surroundings. Thoreau loved nature and the animals that inhabited the jungles. He was not in... More > favour of hunting the small animals. Excursion is the result of his own experience which he describes so minutely that readers are led in to the world where they do feel as if they were the part of the adventures which Thoreau went throught. I read in Audubon with a thrill of delight, when the snow covers the ground, of the magnolia, and the Florida keys, and their warm sea-breezes; of the fence-rail, and the cotton-tree, and the migrations of the rice-bird; of the breaking up of winter in Labrador, and the melting of the snow on the forks of the Missouri; and owe an accession of health to these reminiscences of luxuriant nature.< Less

Canoeing In the Wilderness by Henry David Thoreau is one of the most prominent of the writings which he wrote about nature and the animals living in harmony with the nature. Thoreau was not a... More > hunter. He was curious to know about the world of small animals and he abhorred the people who killed them. He was a curious human being and he believed that a human does not essentially need the things which he continues to accumulate around him. In the present volume various details and digressions that are not of interest to most readers have been omitted, but except for such elimination Thoreau's text has been retained throughout. It is believed that nothing essential has been sacrificed, and that the narrative in this form will be found lively, informing, and thoroughly enjoyable.< Less

More > stone unturned when it came to analyzing the characteristics of the each. His sincere approach to life was his greatest virtue. He was bred to no profession; he never married; he lived alone; he never went to church; he never voted; he refused to pay a tax to the State: he ate no flesh, he drank no wine, he never knew the use of tobacco; and, though a naturalist, he used neither trap nor gun. He chose, wisely, no doubt, for himself, to be the bachelor of thought and Nature. He had no talent for wealth, and knew how to be poor without the least hint of squalor or inelegance.< Less

Cape Cod by Henry David Thoreau is one of the most prominent of the writings He was a man of the strongest local attachments, and seldom wandered beyond his native township. A trip abroad did not... More > tempt him in the least. His book was the result of several journeys, but the only trip of which he tells us in detail was in October. That month, therefore, was the one I chose for my own visit to the Cape when I went to secure the series of pictures that illustrate this edition; for I wished to see the region as nearly as possible in the same guise that Thoreau describes it. From Sandwich, where his record of Cape experiences begins, and where the inner shore first takes a decided turn eastward, I followed much the same route he had travelled in 1849, clear to Provincetown, at the very tip of the hook.< Less
