This poetic narrative details Thoreau’s now famous 1839 boat trip from Concord, Massachusetts to Concord, New Hampshire. The book is dedicated to the memory of Throeau’s brother, John, who joined him on the trip before dying from tetanus three years later. Including Thoreau’s descriptions of their journey and his own ruminations on a variety of academic subjects, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers remains an insightful read on many of the historical transitions occurring in New England at the height of the Industrial Revolution.
