Henry D. Thoreau traveled to the backwoods of Maine in 1846, 1853, and 1857. Originally published in 1864, and published now with a new introduction by Paul Theroux, this volume is a powerful telling of those journeys through a rugged and largely unspoiled land. It presents Thoreau's fullest account of the wilderness. The Maine Woods is classic Thoreau: a personal story of exterior and interior discoveries in a natural setting--all conveyed in taut, masterly prose. Thoreau's evocative renderings of the life of the primitive forest--its mountains, waterways, fauna, flora, and inhabitants--are timeless and valuable on their own. But his impassioned protest against the despoilment of nature 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 own time.… (més)

The Maine Woods by Henry David Thoreau
1961 Book is broken up into different parts of Maine and then by category of trees, flowers and Indian words, etc.
I was fortunate to visit his cabin at Walden Pond in Concord, MA where you can walk and see how he lived there and survived on the land.
Loved the tips the Indian gave him on direction and how to use nature to tell you where you are and how to figure out where you needed to go to.
Really enjoyed the adventures and the things they saw together and at the very end is the index of trees and whether they are common or not and
other little tips during the trips stating what kind of tree to use for the fire to cook certain animals they had killed and why that particular tree.
So much to learn!
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

Not as philosophical as Walden, but great to read in the morning sitting on the deck drinking coffee. Thoreau seemed to be mellowing when he wrote this: it's less of an indictment of the modern world of his time. He does lament the loss of so many trees in the eponymous woods, but he really seems to be enjoying everything he encounters, from the pork fat for breakfast to the drying of his soggy clothes by the fire to the overwhelming bulk of the moose his guides shoot. The most memorable character here is Joe Polis, his American Indian guide on the second excursion, who is a natural man, a business man, and a philosopher. ( )

It's a magnificent journey into the Maine woods. His descriptions of the areas he traveled, the economies & lifestyle were very interesting. The only thing that detracted from this is my dislike of him. He continually borrows what he can't afford with little thought - seems like he feels it is his due. He judges others with an arrogance that is appalling & so offhand. He lacks any empathy towards others. He is fairly intelligent & knowledgeable, but his manner just puts me off. ( )

The German title "Wildnis von Maine" should not be combined with "The Maine Woods", as it contains only one section of this volume (corresponding with the English title "Canoeing in the Wilderness").
