A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, an account of a boat trip Thoreau took in 1839, is a finely crafted tapestry of travel writing, essays, and lyrical poetry. Alternating between observation and reflection, Thoreau interweaves day-by-day descriptions of natural phenomenon, the rural landscape, and local characters with digressions on literature and philosophy, the Native American and Puritan histories of New England, the Bhagavad-Gita, the imperfections of Christianity, and many other subjects.
An invaluable companion to Walden, it stands alone as one of the most remarkable literary achievements of the nineteenth century. [via]
