About this title

Synopsis:

A collection of narratives and essays on the environment created in support of the Walden Woods Project, a non-profit oprganization founded to acquire and preserve historic and environmentally significant sites around Walden Pond

From Publishers Weekly:

Some 40% of the land surrounding Walden Pond in Concord, Mass., is in private hands and open to development. Recently, the Brister's Hill area has been threatened by an office building and Bear Garden Hill by condominiums. The Walden Woods Project, sparked by rock star Henley and fueled by rock journalist Marsh and other celebrities--entertainers, writers, political leaders and environmental activists--is making a determined effort to acquire these properties. The 67 essays offered here are contributions to the project; some refer specifically to Walden, others are on general environmental matters. Styles range from the elegant to the vernacular. This is a literary equivalent of the big benefit concert: we hear from Jesse Jackson, Garry Trudeau, Whoopi Goldberg, Louise Erdrich, Massachusetts senators Ted Kennedy and John Kerry, Meryl Streep, E. L. Doctorow and others. Thoreau would approve. First serial to Rolling Stone.
