Canoeing in the Wilderness is the semi-travelogue by the famed American author Henry David Thoreau.
The book follows Thoreau as he travels through the wilderness on, as the title states, a canoe. Thoreau was a large advocate of the outdoors, and somewhat of a father of the green anarchist movement. The outlook he shares on in the book is rooted in love and the reader can feel the sincere connection with nature. This became a guiding philosophy for those seeking peace that can only be found in the wild.
