Description

Two years after graduating with Harvardís class of 1839, Henry David Thoreau and his brother John built a riverboat and took a leisurely trip that provides the framework for A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. Yet this is not a naturalistís handbook or a travelerís guide. Pages of soaring description of wildlife and woodland living are merely points of departure for fiery, often exuberant polemics on the need for moral fortitude in a society based on utilitarianism. Thoreau utilizes a variety of meditative counterpoints engendered by intense contemplation of nature.
