Overview

Cape Cod [Illustrated] by Henry David Thoreau

Thoreau was one of the greatest writers when it came nature. He was known for his keen observations, unaffected by desires for fame or wealth. His philosophy was routed in naturalism and a yearning for freedom in a political environment, which he felt conflicted with the laws of nature.

In the following text, Cape Cod, Thoreau describes his experiences in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Because Thoreau was drawn to nature and those who lived in and off nature, itt is no surprise that Thoreau was drawn to the Cape, an area rich in history and citizens who lived as fishermen with often little desire for tangible things. Part philosophy and part journal, Cape Cod, is arguably one of Thoreau’s most poignant works.

This edition of Cape Cod is specially formatted with illustrations and a Bieber Touch-or-Click Table of Contents.

About the Author

Massachusetts native Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was a leading member of the American Transcendentalist movement, whose faith in nature was tested while Thoreau lived in a homemade hut at Walden Pond between 1845 and 1847. 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.
