This wonderful book is both a practical and a philosophical field guide to the natural gifts of the American countryside. Audubon

The final harvest of our great nature writers last years, Wild Fruits presents Thoreaus distinctly American gospela sacramental vision of nature in which the tension between Thoreau the naturalist and Thoreau the missionary for natures wonders invigorates nearly every page (Time). In transcribing the 150-year-old manuscripts cryptic handwriting and complex notations, Thoreau specialist Bradley Dean has performed a heroic feat of decipherment (Booklist) to bring this great work to light. Readers will discover passages that reach for the transcendentalist ideal of writing new scriptures, yet grounding this Bible in a vision of practical ecology (Boston). Beautifully illustrated throughout with line drawings of the natural life Thoreau considers on his walks, Wild Fruits is well worth any nature lovers attention (Christian Science Monitor). Illustrated with line drawings
