Walden

by Henry David Thoreau

I have loved Walden for years. Thoreau's humor is exceptional. This is really about how he felt while living in a little cabin in Walden woods, so it does not have a plot. If read as a diary, it will please many, I am sure.

Wild Apples

by Henry David Thoreau

As a lover of Walden, I decided to read this little essay. It was quite enjoyable and I even learned a few things. I recommend it.

Last Leaves from Dunk Island

by E.J. Banfield

This is the last collection of Mr. Banfield's columns that had been published in the newspaper there in Queensland. As a non-Australian, I found the natural history writing excellent and very instructive. However, I was really bothered by his huge prejudice against the Aborigines.This only shows up in a couple of his columns, but it drags the "tone" of his book down.
