From 1837 to 1861, Henry D Thoreau kept a "Journal" that would become the principal imaginative work of his career. This book presents Thoreau's "Journal".

In addition, Thoreau integrates these observations with ethical reflections about living in harmony with nature, following the model of the Roman agricultural writers. The volume also includes Thoreau's account of a September 1853 trip to the Maine woods that appeared in 1858 as "Chesuncook"; the draft is published here for the first time.
