Walking was created at the suggestion of the Nature Company. It contains an edited version of Thoreau's wonderful text "Walking. 7 printings.


The Illuminated Walden began, as did almost everything I have done, more or less by accident.

My wife, Susan Ziegler, was working for the parks department of Massachusetts and one of her colleagues suggested I visit Walden Pond, which I did in the spring of 1991.

What I found was as unexpected as everything else, especially a place called Wyman's Meadow about twenty feet from the path that surrounds the pond, just off the "beaten path" if you will.

I returned often for 11 years, until 2002. In the meantime, an anniversary related to Thoreau was coming up and Barnes & Noble was interested in a book.

There are 65 photographs and substantial excerpts chosen by the then president of the Thoreau Society, Ron Bosco. Two printings.
