Item description for Wild Apples by Henry David Thoreau...
Overview Thoreau's Wild Apples first appeared in the Atlantic Monthly in November of 1862. The book begins with a short history of the apple tree, tracing its path from Ancient Greece to America. Thoreau saw the apple as a perfect mirror of man, and eloquently lamented where they both were heading. Though his words were written over 125 years ago, they live on today as a reminder of the need to preserve what is wild. Thoreau wrote,"Our wild apple is wild only like myself, perchance, who belong not to the aboriginal race here, but have strayed into the woods from the cultivated stock." 48 page softcover by Applewood Books.
