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.

Hand and Ring

by Anna Katharine Green

Nice, convoluted mystery. Not at all an obvious ending!

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.
