Product Overview

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."---Henry David Thoreau (from Walden)

"In Maine we still have some of the wilderness [Thoreau] saw as having the power to awaken the soul and to save the world. Let all the world see his woods. Let all the world enjoy them and feel refreshed and inspired."---Bernd Heinrich (from the Introduction

Beginning in 1847, Henry David Thoreau---one of America's original philosophers and nature writers---made three trips to the mostly unexplored Maine woods. Along the way he recorded his observations on the flora and fauna, weather, terrain, and the people he met along the way, including loggers, rivermen, and his native guides. At the heart of his writing, however, are the recurring questions of man's place in nature. Here, photographer Dan Tobyne captures the essence of the Maine that Thoreau discovered and wrote about in The Maine Woods---his best-selling book after Walden---and the timeless words of Thoreau combine with inspiring images to celebrate the enduring beauty and appeal of the Maine wilderness
