Canoeing in the Wilderness by Henry David Thoreau is an account of a canoe trip through a vast tract of almost-virgin woodland in Maine. The author, a friend and a Native American guide spent two weeks in the wilds, navigating waterways in a canoe or walking and camping on land. The charming prose blends the meditative with detailed descriptions of the journey, the scenery, and the guide’s admirable knowledge and skills. Thoreau was 40 years old when he made this wilderness canoe trip, and the record of the journey comprises the latter half of his work The Maine Woods, one of the most engaging narratives of the wilds.
