Description

“Wild Apples” is a fascinating and wonderfully-written essay concerning the history and variations of wild apple species by American naturalist Henry David Thoreau. One of Thoreau’s major essays, “Wild Apples” perfectly conveys his profound love and appreciation of nature and it’s many wonders. Highly recommended for lovers of nature writing and fans of Thoreau’s seminal work. Contents include: “The History Of The Apple-tree”, “The Wild Apple”, “The Crab”, “How The Wild Apple Grows”, “The Fruit, And Its Flavor”, “Their Beauty”, “The Naming Of Them”, “The Last Gleaning”, and The ‘Frozen-thawed’ Apple”. Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862) was an American poet, philosopher, essayist, abolitionist, naturalist, development critic, and historian. He was also a leading figure in Transcendentalism, and is best known for his book “Walden”, a treatise on simple living in a natural environment. Other notable works by this author include: “The Landlord” (1843), “Reform and the Reformers” (1846-48), and “Slavery in Massachusetts” (1854). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
