Canoeing in the Wilderness
by Henry David Thoreau
Publisher: Houghton, Mifflin & co. 1916
Number of pages: 191
The chief attraction that inspired Thoreau to make the trip was the primitiveness of the region. Here was a vast tract of almost virgin woodland, peopled only with a few loggers and pioneer farmers, Indians, and wild animals. No one could have been better fitted than Thoreau to enjoy such a region and to transmit his enjoyment of it to others.
