The Natural History Essays includes essays from America's most renowned and beloved naturalist, Henry David Thoreau. It includes "Huckleberries," "Natural History of Massachusetts," "A Walk to Wachusett," "The Succession of Forest Trees," "A Winter Walk," "Wild Apples," "Autumnal Tints," and "Walking." This book is part of a series that celebrates the tradition of literary naturalists--writers who embrace the natural world as the setting for some of our most euphoric and serious experiences. These books map the intimate connections between the human and the natural world. Literary naturalists transcend political boundaries, social concerns, and historical milieus; they speak for what Henry Beston called the "other nations" of the planet. Their message acquires more weight and urgency was wild places become increasingly scarce.
