Walking Towards Walden: A Pilgrimage in Search of Placeby John Hanson Mitchell
Starting from an ancient burial site, John Mitchell and friends began a 15-mile hike to the tomb of Henry David Thoreau. They sauntered through the landscape where our literature and history began--the woods favored by the Transcendentalists. On each mile, they explore not only the landscape before them but also certain timeless themes.
