Great Mountain Forest Program with David K. Leff
Although Thoreau never used the term “deep travel,” it well describes his expansive and enriching way of experiencing places near and far. This slide talk will cover how the Concord naturalist prepared for an “excursion,” why he chose particular means of travel, his technique for close observation of people and nature, and the impact of travel for life on return. Leff is the author of Canoeing Maine’s Legendary Allagash: Thoreau, Romance and Survival of the Wild (2016), which will be available for sale and signing.
