Présentation de l'éditeur

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Biographie de l'auteur

Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American author, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, and leading transcendentalist. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay Civil Disobedience, an argument for individual resistance to civil government in moral opposition to an unjust state. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

For Thoreau fans 7 mai 2008
Par Schuyler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is not a book for the first-time or even second-time reader of Thoreau, but for Thoreau fans, especially those familiar with the Princeton University Press edition of the Writings of Henry David Thoreau, the publication of this book is an event. The Princeton series, for those not familiar with it, is the definitive edition of the writings, with exhaustively researched texts and detailed textual introductions and notes, in this case for each of the essays included in this volume. "Excursions" is a welcome addition to the series. There are relatively few notes identifying named individuals and quotations in the text, and for that kind of annotation I would recommend the Library of America edition of the Essays and Poems, another excellent volume.

Free Kindle Version is not bad... 19 octobre 2011
Par Christopher T. Dahle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I enjoy reading Henry David Thoreau and have a number of his books and articles on my shelves, but since buying a Kindle, I thought it would be nice to have some of his works available on the Kindle, and it is, but I think maybe it's worth it to pay a little bit for a version that has a clickable table of contents and so forth.
Varied Collection 18 juillet 2006
Par Erika Mitchell - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a collection of essays and travelogues written by Thoreau reprinted mainly from journals such as the Atlantic Monthly to which Thoreau was a frequent contributor. The contents are:

--A Yankee in Concord

--Natural History of Massachusetts

--A Walk to Wachusett

--The Landlord

--A Winter Walk

--The Succession of Forest Trees


--Autumnal Tints

--Wild Apples

--Night and Moonlight

--May Days

--Days and Nights in Concord

The first essay is a longish travelogue about a short trip to Quebec City, in which Thoreau describes his experiences during the trip, such as how he traveled, with whom he stayed, and notes on the flora and fauna he encountered along the way. The other essays are more concerned with the observations of Thoreau as a naturalist, while there is often a significant philosophical content as well.

Certainly, Thoreau was very observant, and the scientific accuracy of essays such as The Succession of Trees is remarkable, given what was generally known about the topic at the time. On observation, Thoreau writes "Wisdom does not inspect, but behold....We do not learn by inference and deduction and the application of mathematics to philosophy, but by direct intercourse and sympathy." On enjoying the golden colors of the fall, he notes "Wealth indoors may be the inheritance of few, but it is equally distributed on the Common." He instructs "Objects are concealed from our view, not so much because they are out of the course of our visual ray as because we do not bring our minds and eyes to bear on them; for there is no power to see in the eye itself, any more than in any jelly...There is just as much beauty visible to us in the landscape as we are prepared to appreciate,--not a grain more." All in all, this collection of essays is well chosen, and includes many of Thoreau's well-known short works.

"I had walked over those Great Fields so many Augusts, and never yet distinctly recognized these purple companions that I had there. I had brushed against them and trodden on them, forsooth; but now, at last, they, as it were, rose up and blessed me. Beauty and true wealth are always thus cheap and despised. Heaven might be defined as the place which men avoid."

Great examples of what a fine naturalist Thoreau was, and good models to follow for those just starting out on their calling to observe nature.
