“The mission of men there seems to be, like so many busy demons, to drive the forest out of the country.”- Henry David Thoreau, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers
A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers presents Thoreau's fullest account of the wilderness. It’s a personal story of exterior and interior discoveries in a natural setting.
