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 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.
