Product Description:

Thoreau’s famous trip through the Maine Woods reissued to entertain, encourage, and inspire contemporary naturalists.

Thoreau paints the woods and waterways of Maine with the same loving hand that described his Walden home, and entertains with the successes and difficulties of the trip and the quirks of his companion and their guide, Joseph Polis, told with a wit and insight that can only be found in Thoreau.

Henry David Thoreau was an American author, poet, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, philosopher and leading transcendentalist. His writings on natural history and philosophy have become two sources of modern-day environmentalism.

This book includes papers presented at the 6th Arte-Polis International Conference. The theme of the conference was “Imagining Experiences: Creative Tourism and the Making of Place”, and the book brings together studies based on lessons-learned, research and critical reviews related to creative tourism and reflections on placemaking.
