It's a special pleasure to have this lovely and idiosyncratic book available in audio format. Thoreau describes a river journey he made with his brother in the late 1840s, traveling north from Concord, Massachusetts, to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. He describes both outer and inner travels, the sights of the men and nature they pass, as well as the history, literature, philosophies, and religions he carries within. It is peculiarly lovely to work outdoors or travel oneself in a twenty-first-century landscape while listening to that very American writer's discourse on the Bhagavad Gita as inspired by morning on a New Hampshire waterway of 150 years ago. The reading by Patrick Cullen is fine. B.G. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
