by Henry David Thoreau - Houghton, Mifflin & co.

by Isabella Bird - eBooks@Adelaide
In 1872, Isabella Bird set off alone to the Antipodes and found she had embarked on a life of adventurous travel. This volume tells of magnificent, unspoiled landscapes and abundant wildlife, of encounters with rattlesnakes, wolves, and pumas.
by Henry David Thoreau - Boston Houghton
Over a period of three years, Thoreau made three trips to the woods of Maine. He climbed mountains, paddled a canoe, and dined on cedar beer, hemlock tea and moose lips. He captured a wilder side of America and revealed his own adventurous spirit.
