Love Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. However, this didn't bother me because I was happy with the content that is in it. What got me was the fact that I can't seem to find, in the paperback, a whole essay of Thoreau's that is listed in the TOC. The book jumps from "The Young American" by Emerson to "A Plea for Captain John Brown" by Thoreau, completely skipping Thoreau's "An Excursion to Canada. Disappointing I must say.

Margaret Fuller became one of his "disciples," as did Henry David Thoreau.

Ralf Waldo Emerson a eu beaucoup de chagrin à la mort de son fils Waldo en 1842.

Je ne suis pas sûre d'avoir tout compris (texte du 19ème siècle, même traduit). Margaret Fuller became one of his "disciples," as did Henry David Thoreau.

Started reading Thoreau in my Junior year of high school. I starting collecting anything I could find after that. Now I have some on my tablet. If you love nature you should love anything by Thoreau.

A profound example of Thoreau’s ability to go fishing for deeper meaning within his own backyard; a shame that more is not available.

As with his other writings, this is very good and insightful. Thoreau was one of the sharpest and brightest minds of his generation, and his detachment of the common, bourgeois man is notorious.

Nothing he wrote is better than Walden, but this one is very good.

Learned a much more than I would have expected. I did not know that there was so much exploration of the Merrimack
River. This book added a lot to my knowledge of Thoreau

Good story.

Excursions is an excellent example of Thoreau's writings. But for the true Thoreauist his journals are the best.

Good Thoreau book. Very relaxing.
Great examples of what a fine naturalist Thoreau was, and good models to follow for those just starting out on their calling to observe nature.
