the height of thoreau-vean reading!

J. P. Huber's book is the most interesting of all those published in this new series by Houghton Mifflin. The reason for this is that he mixes Thoreau quotes with a detailed, almost pitch by pitch, description of the early ascents of many New England Mts. This book should be a must-read by all interested in mountains, mountain climbing, and environmental scholarship in general. For the latter reason, the publisher, Green Frigate Books, asked Huber to pen an intro blurb to my recently published book "Profitably Soaked: Thoreau's Engagment with Water."
