More About Henry David Thoreau & Dan Tobyne

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Henry David Thoreau was born in Concord, Massachusetts in 1817. He graduated from Harvard in 1837, the same year he began his lifelong Journal. Inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thoreau became a key member of the Transcendentalist movement that included Margaret Fuller and Bronson Alcott. The Transcendentalists' faith in nature was tested by Thoreau between 1845 and 1847 when he lived for twenty-six months in a homemade hut at Walden Pond. While living at Walden, Thoreau worked on the two books published during his lifetime: Walden (1854) and A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (1849). Several of his other works, including The Maine Woods, Cape Cod, and Excursions, were published posthumously. Thoreau died in Concord, at the age of forty-four, in 1862.

Reviews - What do customers think about Thoreau's Cape Cod?

Old Cape Cod, revisited  Aug 27, 2008
Having first visited Cape Cod in the early 1970's, I've been sadden by so much of the beauty that's been lost over the last forty years. Thoreau's words have long captured that world, underscored by the striking images of Dan Tobyne's photographs. Here is a book that allows you to enter into the visually wonderful romance of 'ol Cape Cod no matter where you live. Dan's love for all things 'New England' clearly comes through his photographs in both his books.
I love this book!!  Aug 26, 2008
I bought this book as a present-day souvenir of my childhood trips to the Cape, which took place more than 20 years ago. I think that the photography serves as an inspirational physical capture of Thoreau's words, while at the same time, gives me a vivid illustration of my own childhood memories of what are, in my opinion, the most stunning landscapes that America has to offer. As fond as I am of the Cape, I have a new-found appreciation for it, thanks to this book. I've since purchased two more copies, to be given as gifts.
Not your typical "lighthouses & rocks" book  Aug 15, 2008
This complete edition of Thoreau's Cape Cod is a positive change from the text-only version I'd owned in the past, due to the beautiful photographs. While Thoreau's writing is always engaging, and Cape Cod is arguably the lightest of his works, Tobyne's images provide a welcome visual break while reading. The photos punctuate and reinforce the writing, and are evocative of the text. Furthermore, the images are not what you usually see in what is arguably a regional travelogue, getting away from the typical lighthouse and well-known beach pictures and giving the reader/viewer a new perspective on Cape Cod. Even subjects that might otherwise seem "familiar" are captured in a unique and new way by the photographer.
