Format: Paperback
This simple yet lovely small book is easy to pick up and read, whether before beginning the day or retiring at night. Everyone who delights in the outdoors and enjoys reading nature writers needs a copy of this book. And the price is right! Be immersed again in the wise words of Thoreau and other thoughtful spiritual teachers.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By L. M. Dunn on January 4, 2005
Format: Paperback
This a wonderful book. It certainly can be read very quickly, but why would you want to? Take your time and enjoy the words on the pages. See and feel the beauty in all things the way Thoreau did. After reading a selection from the book, I always came away with good feelings, very serene. I will likely read it again and again. I've just recently moved to Oregon where it is lush and beatiful. My change of scenery may have given me a somewhat, Thoreau, perspective, but then, that's the idea, isn't it? Judge for yourself.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jesse Bartlett on April 24, 2008
Format: Paperback
I have bought the other books in this series with Emerson, Whitman and Muir and this one by far is the best! I am not sure if I connected so much with Thoreau's writing style or if his thoughts just were more impactful to the soul but I loved this book. Each meditation is to be read and really pondered over to get its fully impact, this isn't just a book to read to kill time but to really reflect on the deaper issues under the surface of this thing we call life. Buy it and enjoy it!

I love this book so much that I have purchases 6 more as gifts....My favorite story to share is that I gave "Mediations of Henry David Thoreau: A Light in the Woods" to my son on his 40th birthday, writing that I wanted him to slow down, sit on his porch and read it. Best advice a mother could give!
