I spent my summer of unemployment reading this volume which includes Thoreau's Journals 1 through 7 of 14 total. I loved reading it, not having to keep track of a plot. Immersing myself in his observations, I would get confused as to what season it actually was outside! ha.

I read through return of the galley proofs in 1854. A truly amazing book, full of insight and interesting observations. I read the Dover Edition of 1962, edited by Torrey and Allen.
