Overview

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 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.
