This edition of "Walden" features exquisite wood engravings by Michael McCurdy, one of America's leading engravers and woodblock artists. McCurdy's engravings bring the text to life--and illuminate the spirit of Thoreau's prose. Also included is a foreword by noted author, environmentalist, and naturalist Terry Tempest Williams who reflects upon Thoreau's message that as we explore our world and ourselves, we draw ever closer to the truth of our connectedness.
Award-winning artist Michael McCurdy has illustrated more than 170 books for adults and children. His books often explore America s past, bringing to life its history and traditions. He lives with his wife, Deborah, on a farm in western Massachusetts.
Terry Tempest Williams is the award-winning author of books including "Leap", "An Unspoken Hunger", "Refuge", and "Finding Beauty in a Broken World". She divides her time between Castle Valley, Utah, and Moose, Wyoming.
