Some brief overview of this book

Henry D. Thoreau traveled to the backwoods of Maine in 1846, 1853, and 1857. Originally published in 1864, and published now with a new introduction by Paul Theroux, this volume is a powerful telling of those journeys through a rugged and largely unspoiled land. It presents Thoreaus fullest account of the wilderness.

The Maine Woods is classic Thoreau: a personal story of exterior and interior discoveries in a natural setting—all conveyed in taut, masterly prose. Thoreaus evocative renderings of the life of the primitive forest—its mountains, waterways, fauna, flora, and inhabitants—are timeless and valuable on their own. But his impassioned protest against the despoilment of nature in the name of commerce and sport, which even by the 1850s threatened to deprive Americans of the tonic of wildness, makes The Maine Woods an especially vital book for our own time.

With Abnaki guides, Thoreau climbed Mt. Katahdin and hiked deep into the Maine woods to places where one might live and die and never hear of the United States. His accurate, evocative descriptions still reflect his belief that man himself is a part of the natural world.
