In these dated entries from his Journal, taken from both the standard 1906 Houghton Mifflin edition and the newer Princeton edition, Henry David Thoreau speaks to the seasons, from the first song of the bay-wing in mid-April to the somber reflections of bare trees and scrubbed earth in November. Editor Ronald Bosco provides a substantial introduction and arranges the writings under the headings Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Spring Again. This brief collection of writings, sponsored by the Thoreau Society and published by the University of Massachusetts Press, is illustrated with Barry Moser's superb engravings.
