Thoreau's account of his 1839 boat journey is a finely crafted tapestry of trip writing, essays, and lyrical poetry. Thoreau interweaves descriptions of average phenomena, the agricultural panorama, and native characters with digressions on literature and philosophy, the local American and Puritian histories of latest England, the Bhagavad Gita, the imperfections of Christianity, and lots of different subjects.

even though it stocks some of the subject matters in Thoreau's vintage WALDEN, every week deals an alternate viewpoint on his analaysis of the connection among nature and tradition.
