Two great naturalist writers converge in written word exploring and sharing in the adventure and journey down Henry David Thoreau's (WALDEN) two infamous rivers, near to Concord, Mass., the Sudbury, and the Assabet. It is the words of one of America's treasures as a nature writer, -Mr. Edwin Way Teale, and the equally prosaic and Nature-minded, Ms. Ann Zwinger. They became good friends, she a long-time resident of Colorado and he the great, late gifted writer who lived with his beloved wife Nellie in their farm homestead in the Connecticut woods. Both have written a line of incredible books and this one is a special marvel. If one lives for the thought and history and 'transcendental' life of the 'one and only' Henry David Thoreau then this is a chance for you as a reader to read the words of two gifted 'modern' day writers who shared the passion and the simplicity of their own journey down the two New England rivers made so immortal by him. It is the very last passages ever written by Edwin Way Teale. (He would pass away pior to the completion of this book) It is all summarized a bit by the impassioned writer, his friend, Ann Zwinger. The river is silent and then rolls as the two nature writers express in mind-provoking prose and then exude excitement in the contrast of the two moments, and many other moments. There is reflection and natural, 'real heart-felt' description. A PLEASURE OF A BOOK. If you have either read Teale and/or Zwinger or the giant of a literary force, Henry David Thoreau, then you will enjoy this wonderful book. I did. And I will read everything I can get my hands on in regards to Ann Zwinger and Edwin Way Teale. 5 stars! -RSC.
