Coming soon: Thoreau’s Wildflowers

It’s been almost a year since I announced here that Yale University Press would be publishing my next book Thoreau’s Wildflowers. Now it’s scheduled for release in March 2016, and you can read more about it at Yale’s website.


Thoreau’s Wildflowers is a selection of observations from Thoreau’s Journal between 1850 and 1861, arranged by the day of the year. The text is illustrated with more than 200 long-unavailable black and white drawings by Barry Moser, first published in the 1979 book Flowering Plants of Massachusetts. The book also includes an introduction by myself, and Ray Angelo‘s classic essay ”Thoreau as Botanist.”

For a taste of what you’ll find in the book, follow me on Twitter at @ThoreausFlowers.
