The inspiration for Henry David Thoreau's masterpiece and increasingly a tourist hot spot, Walden Pond is an American treasure. From the reconstructed house that the philosopher lived in for two years to remote and tranquil Deep Cove, geologist Robert Thorson curates a 15-stop tour of this unspoiled region, providing a wealth of information on its plants, animals, and history. Suitable as a travel guide or as a companion to Walden, the book includes quotations by Thoreau throughout as well as 80 color photographs and maps.
