An interesting combination of history and natural history from Ann Zwinger, and Edwin Way Teale, two of the most recognized nature writers of the 20th century. They canoe the Assebet and Sudbury Rivers together but Zwinger write her thoughts about the Assebet and Teale of the Sudbury. They both write about the conjoining of the two when they become the Concord River. Bit of thought and quotes from Thoreau through out. A pleasant read.
