Synopsis: A stunning presentation of one of America's leading photographers and artistic pioneers, this is Eliot Porter's interpretation of the works of Henry David Thoreau in a commemorative edition of one of the most famous (and bestselling) Sierra Club Exhibit Format Books. 72 color photos.

From Publishers Weekly: A new generation has come of age since this elegant volume was published 26 years ago (it has been out of print since 1975). Readers will welcome the new edition, which evokes the same awe and admiration for the combination of Thoreau's prose and Porter's stunning photographs. Word and picture complement each other in celebration of the New England countryside through the seasons. This was a landmark work. Porter's images of woods and streams, bogs and forests, plant and animal life remind us that Thoreau saw these things in similiar settings more than a century ago. The book is timeless.
