Caminhada - Ensaios de Henry David Thoreau by Henry David Thoreau, Leo Kades

Em seu livro Caminhada, Henry David Thoreau nos convida á viver na Natureza e a preservá-la. É um verdadeiro manual para aqueles que desejam se embrenhar na natureza em busca de silêncio e paz para a alma cansada da correria e do barulho ensurdecedor da sociedade. Thoreau nos desafia á entender que o homem faz parte da Natureza, sendo o homem um dos aspectos mais importantes de sua manifestação.

Caminhada foi inicialmente apresentado em uma de suas palestras em 1851 com o título de The Wild e publicado como ensaio anos depois de sua morte com o titulo Walking.

Sua mensagem poética e cheia de beleza continua atual e, suas palavras servem de inspiração para escritores, ambientalistas e amantes da natureza por todo o mundo. Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an essayist, poet, philosopher, and anti-slavery activist. Among his other notable books are A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers and Civil Disobedience. He died of tuberculosis and he is buried in his familys plot near the graves of his friends Hawthorne, Alcott, Emerson, and Channing on Authors Ridge in Concords Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.

While there, Thoreau worked on the two books published in his lifetime: Walden and A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. The Maine Woods, Cape Cod, Excursions, and other works were published posthumously.
