A Yankee in Canada, with Anti-slavery and reform papers by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

11 editions published between 1866 and 1892 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Maine woods by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

6 editions published in 1864 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Maine Woods is a characteristically Thoreauvian book: a personal account of exploration, of exterior and interior discovery in a natural setting, conveyed in taut, workmanlike prose. Thoreau's evocative renderings of the life of the primitive forest--its mountains, waterways, fauna, flora, and inhabitants--are valuable in themselves. But his impassioned protest against despoilment in the name of commerce and sport, which even by the 1850s threatened to deprive Americans of the "tonic of wildness," makes The Maine Woods an especially vital book for our time. This edition presents Thoreau's fullest account of the wilderness as he intended it
Excursions by Henry David Thoreau( Book )

5 editions published between 1863 and 1864 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Excursions presents texts of nine essays, including some of Thoreau's most engaging and popular works, newly edited and based on the most authoritative versions of each. These essays represent Thoreau in many stages of his writing career, ranging from 1842-when he accepted Emerson's commission to review four volumes of botanical and zoological catalogues in an essay that was published in The Dial is "Natural, History of Massachusetts" to 1862, when he prepared "Wild Apples," a lecture he had delivered in the Concord Lyceum's 1859-1860 season, for publication in the Atlantic Monthly after his death."--Jacket
