Very similar in style to Walden, and in fact written while he stayed at Walden Pond, this account chronicles Throeau's 1830 boat trip. In it, he weaves together travel writing, essays on religion, history, and lyrical poetry, as well as his own unique philosophy.
Voice actor Jim Killavey gives a melodious performance of A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, American writer and philosopher Henry David Thoreau’s first published book. His rich voice complements the expansive nature of the text, which is rife with symbolism and surprising in its structure. Thoreau’s narrative is an account of an excursion he took with his elder brother John in 1839. The pair travelled by boat and on foot, journeying from Concord, Massachusetts, to New Hampshire. The book is a moving memorial tribute to John, who died in 1842.
