Farrar, Straus, Giroux,
Pub. Date:
During his brief, energetic life (1817-62), and long before backpacking became popular, Henry David Thoreau climbed a number of New England mountains -- at the time remote wilderness areas where only Indians and a few pioneering botanists regularly traveled.Walking with Thoreau gives Henry David Thoreau's writings on nine New England mountains -- Wachusett and Greylock in Massachusetts; Katahdin and Kenio in Maine; and Wantastiquet, Fall Mountain, Washington, Lafayette, and Monadnock in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont. William Howarth's expert and illuminating commentary, printed alongside Thoreau's text, allows the present-day hiker to retrace Thoreau's foot-steps up some of New England's most popular mountain destinations. This innovative resource combines specially drawn state maps, original itineraries (William Howarth climbed all of Thoreau's trails), and modern-equivalent route information to make Walking with Thoreau the essential literary hiker's guide.
