Overview

In his classic essay on walking, Henry David Thoreau, the famous naturalist and philosopher, extols the virtues of immersing ourselves daily in nature. Thoreau treats the act of walking as a vehicle that transports us to the sacred space that is nature. The wildness of nature becomes a retreat from the noise of contemporary society and civilization-a place to rest our thoughts and regain balance between these two worlds. This J. Missouri edition contains nearly 40 new historical and biographical footnotes.
