As a canoe fanatic, I find such stories to be full of forgotten ways, and their related wife's tails. It's always great to take a trip back to a much more basic and more connected time. This book, though not always easy to follow due to the period's vasculars and custom. But it will bring you into their world gone by.

As a canoe fanatic, I find such stories to be full of forgotten ways, and their related wife's tails. It's always great to take a trip back to a much more basic and more connected time. This book, though not always easy to follow due to the period's vasculars and custom. But it will bring you into their world gone by. It always Intrigue's me to see just how far history books are from the actual truths.

I love Thoreau's work, this is not even close to my favorite.
It is slightly entertaining in its characterization of the classic "Indian Guide" but stereotypic for the prevailing attitude.
Other that that, it was a paddling log, with very few sparks of brilliance. Easily forgotten.

A typical Thoreau piece. Thought provoking and entertaining. One of Thoreau's that has been around for decades but I hadn't read. Short and well worth the time to read.

Well written by a master observer of wildlife, woods, and people. A book worth reading more than once.....Dave

All expectations were met.

This is good slow read, descriptive of the scenery, in true Thoreau fashion. It reads more like an essay than a book. It will make you want to visit the area and bring you back to a more primitive day.

great read!
A wonderful story of the back waters of the old Northeast, philosophical at times, hair raising at others. Thoreau's relationship with his native guide is especilly interesting.
