Thoreau presents information about the "'unnoticed wild berry whose beauty annually lends a new charm to some wild walk,'" along with what "may be considered Thoreau's last will and testament, in which he protests our desecration of the landscape, reflects on the importance of preserving wild space 'for instruction and recreation,' and envisions a new American scripture."--Jacket.
