In High Places with Henry David Thoreau
Hiking routes let you explore the same areas of MA, NH, and ME that Thoreau explored. This is the essential guide for modern-day walkers and hikers eager to retrace Thoreau’s routes on New England’s peaks. Insights about Thoreau’s mountain journeys, excerpts from his trip narratives, detailed topographical maps, and precise trail directions pave the way―figuratively―for hikers who want to cover the same ground that Thoreau explored in the mid-19th century. With this inventive guide in hand, history and literature buffs and outdoors enthusiasts alike can enjoy a dozen hikes and at least as many stories of what the trails were like in Thoreau’s day.
