Of the three books I have read by Thoreau (Walden and the Maine Woods being the other two), I enjoyed this one the most. Thoreau's description of the Cape Cod bay and coast are impeccable, and actually make you long to resort there. I would love to re-trace his course from Barnstable to Provincetown, visiting Truro and Wellfleet as I perused through the dunes and cliffs.

The Maine Woods (The Writings of Henry D. Henry David Thoreau,Joseph J. Moldenhauer. The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau provides, for the first time, accurate texts of Thoreau's complete works: his writings for publication, his Journal, his correspondence, and other uncollected papers.
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.
