Publisher's Summary

From the purple grasses of August, to the yellow elms of October, to the scarlet oak leaves of November, Henry David Thoreau casts his eye on the brilliant colors of autumn and guides us on a journey through the season's bounty.

In this classic essay, first published in 1862, Thoreau delights in fall's foliage and reveals both a practical and philosophical understanding of the changing environment. Now available in audio for the first time, Thoreau's essay is the perfect travel companion for those out to discover one of America's natural wonders.

Critic Reviews
