The Maine Woods

Published posthumously, The Maine Woods was based on essays which had originally been published during his lifetime in The Union Magazine and The Atlantic Monthly, compiled and edited into this single book-length work after his death by his friend William Ellery Channing. Recounting the three trips he made to the woods and mountains of Maine, readers will find a veritable bounty of information on the nature and wildlife he encountered, the trials and tribulations of his journey by rowboat, along with his observations on the various people he encountered, most notably the Native American friend and guide who accompanied him on these journeys. After his more well-known book Walden, The Maine Woods, is perhaps the most easily-accessible and enjoyable work for most readers.
