Edited and Introduced by Bradley P. Dean. Thoreau's uncompleted last manuscript, as left partially completed at the time of his death, appears here published for the first time. Naturalist and protoecologist, he cultivated an interest in collecting botanical specimens while he supplemented his income as a surveyor. Apparently he built a "scaffol" inside the crown of his hat to collect plant specimens, carrying a botanical guide with him on his afternoon walks. "My profession is to be always on the alert to finid God in nature-to know his lurking places". Sections: Related Passages, A Thoreau Chronology, Glossary of Botanical Terms, A Note on the Provenance of the Manuscript, A Note to the Reader, Manuscript Facsimile, Editor's Notes, Works Cited, Acknowledgments, Index. ISBN 0393047512. #2492.
