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.

From Library Journal:

Originally published in 1962 and reprinted often since, this popular work combines the nature photography of Porter with short excerpts from the writings of Thoreau. The fresh reproductions in this commemorative reprinting are superior to paperback editions of the 1970s. Beth Clewis, Duke Univ. Lib., Durham
