Detailed Information:
In addition to being a writer, Henry Thoreau was a pioneer in his appreciation of the natural world in America. Paul Theroux, in a 2004 introduction, wrote that "The Maine Woods is one of the earliest and most detailed accounts of the process of change in the American hinterland. Thoreau showed us how to write about nature; how to know more; how to observe, even how to live. ... In this book he illustrates the powerful lesson of the truthfulness of dogged observation: that when the truth is told, the text is prophetic."
