Walking Towards Walden PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Walking Towards Walden free pdf Walking towards Walden is an exploration of the sense of place, what it means, how it developed, and why it matters. Based on an eighteenth-century literary device in which a group of friends undertake a walking tour and discuss a certain subject, this wide-ranging story emerges from the author's fifteen-mile bushwhack through woods, backyards, and marshes - from a hilltop in Westford, Massachusetts, to the town of Concord, Massachusetts - trespassing all along the way. A mock epic, complete with encounters with armed mercenaries and vicious dogs, the book covers all the aspects of place - art, literature, myth, and even music.
