For this is the secret of successful sauntering.

For this is the secret of successful sauntering. He who sits still in a house all the time may be the greatest vagrant of all; but the saunterer, in the good sense, is no more vagrant than the meandering river, which is all the while sedulously seeking the shortest course to the sea. But I prefer the first, which, indeed, is the most probable derivation. For every walk is a sort of crusade, preached by some Peter the Hermit in us, to go forth and reconquer this Holy Land from the hands of the Infidels

Free from the herd metality, his observations and ideals sets you thinking. This book is about walking - sauntering through the higlands of the mind as well as through the pristine nature here on earth.

Free from the herd metality, his observations and ideals sets you thinking.

Henry David Thoreau crafted essays that reflect his speculative and probing cast of mind. In his poems, he gave voice to his private sentiments and spiritual aspirations in the plain style of New England speech. Now, The Library of America brings together these indispensable works in one authoritative volume.

Henry David Thoreau (see name pronunciation; July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American essayist, poet, and philosopher

Henry David Thoreau (see name pronunciation; July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American essayist, poet, and philosopher. A leading transcendentalist, he is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay "Civil Disobedience" (originally published as "Resistance to Civil Government"), an argument for disobedience to an unjust state.

Librivox recording of "Walking" by Henry David Thoreau Read by Chris Masterson. This was originally a lecture given by Thoreau in 1851 at the Concord lyceum titled "The Wild". This essay appears, on the surface, to be simply expounding the qualities of Nature and man's place therein. Through this medium he not only touches those subjects, but with the implications of such a respect for nature, or lack thereof. Summary by Chris Masterson).

This is a remarkable depth for so small an area; yet not an inch of it can be spared by the imagination. But sometimes Squaw Walden had her revenge, and a hired man, walking behind his team, slipped through a crack in the ground down toward Tartarus, and he who was so brave before suddenly became but the ninth part of a man, almost gave up his animal heat, and was glad to take refuge in my house, and acknowledged that there was some virtue.

Henry David Thoreau book. Reading this book made me want to walk the sands and dunes that Thoreau walked and described over 150 years ago.

This is a must read book - it should be required reading for everybody to graduate high school and college. The author's writing style and the old English can be a little challenging in spots, but not too difficult. It is a very enjoyable read that takes the reader to another place spiritually and philosophically. It discusses the very important topic of how we interact with nature, and our bond with nature, as well as the importance of protecting and conserving wild places. It gives a much needed point of view that is rare to find these days and perhaps needed now more than ever. Most of all it is a celebration of appreciating and enjoying the great outdoors (without killing or destroying), simply finding peace and joy in the natural beauty that is around us which so many of us neglect. A real gem that just might stir or awaken something inside of you. You will want to explore or go for a walk in the woods after reading this.

Wonderful thoughts on innovation and aspiration and who we really are. The concluding sentence is the best thing this side of the last sentence of the Great Gatsby. My high school self was wrong about Thoreau.

The book I received did not look like the picture. It was far better! Same content of course, but it is a beautiful looking book.

An tribute to Nature and a call to the civilized man to express his true nature and individuality. I'm enriched, influenced and entertained by Thoreau's works and this one is no exception. Free from the herd metality, his observations and ideals sets you thinking. This book is about walking - sauntering through the higlands of the mind as well as through the pristine nature here on earth.

Random sampling from the book:

- Our expeditions are but tours, and come round again at evening to the old hearth-side from which we set out. Halk the walk is but retracing the steps.

- The landscape-painter uses the figures of men to mark a road. He would not make that use of my figure. I walk out into a nature such as the old prophets and poets, Menu, Moses, Homer, Chaucer, walked in.

- At present, in this vicinity, the best part of the land is not private property; the landscape is not owned and the walker enjoys comprative freedom. But possibly the day will come when it will be partitioned off into so-called pleasure grounds, in which a few will take a narrow and exclusive pleasure only - when fences shall be multiplied, and man-traps and other engines invented to confine men to the PUBLIC road, and walking over the surface of God's earth shall be construed to mean trespassing on some gentleman's grounds. To enjoy a thing exclusively is to exclude yourself from the true enjoyment of it.

- Hope and future for me are not in lawns and cultivated fields, not in towns and cities, but in the impervious and quaking swamps.

- ...for what is most of our boasted so-called knowledge but a conceit that we know something, which robs us of the advantages of our actual ignorance

Do you LOVE to walk @ a leisurely pace? Or hike just for the sake of getting outdoors & connecting with
yourself, the world around you? Then this is the book for you!! Me thinks( a Thoreauism) all bipeds who love the art of walking in all its glorious forms should have this in their library..with life today so over-burdening & stressful, who SHOULD'NT take up walking?? To walk, saunter or pace is refreshing, energizing, and there are many studies proving its therapeutic & health value. Its written to reflect the time in which he lived( pre-Civil War), so some of his grammar/ expressions are antiquated, but have value today. BIPEDS~LOVE YOUR FEET!! Get this book- and kindle your love of walking today!

As someone who does a lot of back country hiking, this is like a walk, but inside your own head. I have. A shirt that says, I hike to burn off the crazy, perhaps Henry and I are somehow related. My advice, kick back and enjoy!

Be aware that this dark-blue-cloth "Library of America" hardcover edition (whose spine--but not the front cover--is tastefully stamped with gold characters) exists in TWO very different-looking versions: (1) in the largely black dust jacket pictured on Amazon's product page, with no slipcase; or (2) in a fairly fancy, cream-colored slipcase, without the dust jacket. Thus, before placing your order, you might want to ask the seller WHICH version they're selling--especially if you want this volume to visually match its noteworthy "companion" (ISBN 0940450275, which comprises all four of Thoreau's full-length books--A WEEK ON THE CONCORD & MERRIMACK RIVERS; WALDEN; THE MAINE WOODS; and CAPE COD), which likewise exists in two such versions.

Another reviewer questioned this hardcover's durability and price. Regarding its DURABILITY per se, the prospective buyer needn't fret about anything whatsoever [including the paper's (satisfyingly sufficient) thickness and quality]. Library of America's hardcovers are very well made! Regarding the PRICE, however, it indeed seems gallingly steep, at least to notoriously frugal souls like me.

Even so, presently this book--to my knowledge--constitutes the best and most comprehensive single-volume compilation of HDT's essays [not to mention his (infinitely less significant) poetry] for the layperson.

In pursuit of HDT's beloved virtue of "simplicity," consummate Thoreauvians would, arguably, fare best by owning just two (or perhaps three) publications:

(1) this "Library of America" edition of HDT's COLLECTED ESSAYS AND POEMS (ISBN 1883011957);

(2) the "Library of America" single-volume edition of HDT's four full-length books [A WEEK ON THE CONCORD AND MERRIMACK RIVERS; WALDEN; THE MAINE WOODS; and CAPE COD (ISBN 0940450275)]; and perhaps,

(3) HDT's complete (14-volume) JOURNAL (ISBN 0879051736).

With just those three editions, we've--essentially--got "THE" works of Henry David Thoreau on our shelf.
