Published in 1849, four years after WALDEN, A WEEK ON THE CONCORD AND MERRIMACK RIVERS narrates a trip by small boat that Thoreau and his brother John made to New Hampshire's White Mountains. As in WALDEN, scrupulously-given details drawn from Nature's abundant display and from Thoreau's and his brother's romantic adventure are combined with the author's vast knowledge and musings on history, philosophy, religion, discussions of great books, together with insertions of his own poetry and that of others. Almost as many Thoreau quotations derive from this book as from WALDEN.
