"A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers" is a narrative of a 2 week boat trip from Concord, Massachusetts, down the Concord River to the Middlesex Canal, to the Merrimack River, up to Concord, New Hampshire, and back, taken by Thoreau and his brother John. It covers diverse topics such as religion, poetry, and history, which Thoreau relates to his own life experiences. "Walden" details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built in the woods near Walden Pond, Massachusetts. The book is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. "The Maine Woods" is a collection of accounts of 3 different trips Thoreau took to wilds of Maine, unified by his increasing fascination with the primitive world and the "wild," both environmental and psychological. "Cape Cod" is an account based on a few trips Thoreau took to Cape Cod. It depicts a journey through the dismal, deserted, unpopulated wasteland that was Cape Cod in the early 1850s, describing both the landscape and the rugged people who lived in it. "A Yankee in Canada" is an excursion book about Thoreau's journey to the region of Montréal and Québec in the Fall of 1850. "Canoeing" in the Wilderness is the record of the canoe trip through Main Woods. It is vast tract of almost virgin woodland, peopled only with a few loggers and pioneer farmers, Indians, and wild animals. Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an American essayist, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, surveyor, and historian. A leading transcendentalist, Thoreau is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay Civil Disobedience, an argument for disobedience to an unjust state.

Deep Travel

Author: David K. Leff
Publisher: University of Iowa Press
ISBN: 9781587298394
Release Date: 2009-04
Genre: Travel

In the hot summer of 2004, David Leff floated away from the routine of daily life just as Henry David Thoreau and his brother had done in their own small boat in 1839. Fortified with Thoreau’s observations as revealed in A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, Leff brought his own concept of mindful deep travel to these same New England waterways. His first-person narrative uses his ecological way of looking, of going deep rather than far, to show that our outward journeys are inseparable from our inward ones. How we see depends on where we are in our lives and with whom we travel. Leff chose his companions wisely. In consecutive journeys his neighbor and friend Alan, a veteran city planner; his son Josh, an energetic eleven-year-old; and his sweetheart Pamela, a compassionate professional caregiver, added their perspectives to Leff’s own experiences as a government official in natural resources policy. Not so much sight seeing as sight seeking, together they explored a geography of the imagination as well as the rich natural and human histories of the rivers and their communities. The heightened awareness of deep travel demands that we immerse ourselves fully in places and realize that they exist in time as well as space. Its mindfulness enriches the experience and makes the voyager worthy of the journey. Leff’s intriguing, contemplative deep travel along these historic rivers presents a methodology for exploration that will enrich any trip.
