Henry David Thoreau took four walking tours of Cape Cod from 1849 to 1857, and the result is what Walter Harding called his "sunniest, happiest book. It bubbles over with jokes, puns, tall tales, and genial good humor." Thoreau's Cape Cod comes vividly to life in this exquisite edition, with the help of Dan Tobyne's brilliant color photography. Tobyne committed himself to "walking the walk" - retracing Thoreau's steps to find what can still be seen of Thoreau's Cape Cod. Tobyne's images are matched to the corresponding passages from Thoreau's text. We can be grateful that much of the pristine beauty that inspired the naturalist 150 years ago is still there to inspire and uplift us today.
