IN WILDERNESS is the Preservation of the World by Henry- Text by Thoreau

IN WILDERNESS is the Preservation of the World

Email this review


Only a dummy is available on this stunning book -- in the tradition of earlier Sierra Club publications -- but there is enough to show that again there is an exquisite blending of mood in text and photographs. From Thorcau's Journals the seasonal round is reflected- and opposite each page of text is to be a photograph- 72 in full color- which capture the spirit of the wilderness and natural beauty, immortalized by its seer and prophet, Henry Thoreau. In this his centenary year here is another tribute. Beautiful as it is, one wonders just where the market for a book at this price will be found.
