Large Format for easy reading. A collection of some of his classic essays, including "Walking", "Autumnal Tints", "Night and Moonlight" and "Wild Apples". Scientists regard these works as anticipating ecology, the study of interactions between species, places, and seasons. Among his lasting contributions are his writings on natural history and philosophy, where he anticipated the methods and findings of ecology and environmental history, two sources of modern day environmentalism.

Editorial Reviews

Times Higher Education
Presents newly edited texts of nine essays—including some of Thoreau's most popular and engaging works—drawing from his writing career between 1842 and 1862. The collection highlights Thoreau's early use of themes and approaches that recur throughout his work, including explorations of internal and external geography.
New England Quarterly
Students of textual editing should study this production as a model of the meticulous layers of investigation required to reach the highest standards of their craft. Thanks to Moldenhauer and the many others who assisted with this work, scholars and general readers now have, at long last, a critical text of Thoreau's beloved nature essays, a text that reproduces as closely as possible Thoreau's authorial intentions.
