Walking was first collected by Ralph Waldo Emerson in Excursions of 1863. A work of nature and philosophy, Walking is considered to have laid the foundation for Walden as well as the environmental movement. As Thoreau proclaims on page 42, "For I believe that climate does thus react on man, -- as there is something in the mountain air that feeds the spirit and inspires." Well-preserved limited numbered first separate edition. BAL 20228. Henry David Thoreau's 'Walking,' NYT, May 10, 2017.
