    This series of essays are interesting in their systematic yet somewhat unscientific exploration of nature Thoreau comes across as a poet who wishes he were a scientist, and ends up with this as the middle ground His love of nature and country are admirable My favorite entries were the first, which is essentially a book review of a natural survey commissioned by the state legislature, and Autumnal Tints Thoreau had a tendency to start with a fairly specific topic about nature, but en...
