What People are Saying About This

Eric T. Freyfogle

The reader of this delightful book needs to be forewarned. Despite the learning or lack behind it, it is above all an adventure story, set in the meadows and woods and swamps that Thoreau traipsed through. McGregor makes this land come alive, and Thoreau the naturalist is there in the middle of it, as inquisitive and engaging as ever.
