Synopsis: Compiled from magazine articles published in the 1850s after his death, these chapters detail several short trips Thoreau made to ""the bare and bended arm of Massachusetts"" between 1849 and 1855. Encounters with the ocean dominate the book, from the fatal shipwreck of the opening episode to the late reflections on the Pilgrims' Cape Cod landing and reconnaissance. Along the way, Thoreau relates the experiences of fishermen and oystermen, lighthouse-keepers and ship-captains, and their chronicles of exploration, settlement, and survival on the Cape.
About the Author:
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an American essayist, naturalist, philosopher, and poet. Born at Concord, Massachusetts, and educated at Harvard, he began his career as a teacher. Through his older friend and neighbor, Ralph Waldo Emerson, he became a part of the Transcendentalist circle and one of that group's most eloquent spokespersons. He is best known for his book, Walden, and his essay, "On the Duty of Civil Disobedience."
