IN WILDNESS IS THE PRESERVATION OF THE WORLD

$24.95

Henry David Thoreau, Eliot Porter

Hardcover, 168 pages

Description

In Wildness  in a vintage classic that pairs passages by writer Henry David Thoreau alongside images by photographer Eliot Porter. Porter and the Sierra Club founder, David Brower, first published this bestselling long-out-of-print classic monograph in 1962, and it has been often referred to as “the very first coffee-table book.” Although they lived a century apart, Porter and Thoreau’s work beautifully exists side by side, as co-authors of this beloved book that advocates for the preservation of the natural environment.
