Ahead of its time, this bestselling—and long-out-of-print—classic monograph was first published in 1962. Porter masterfully created color photographs of the New England woods to pair with the writings of Henry David Thoreau. The finished “collaboration" arrived in an era when environmental causes were not as prominent in the public consciousness, yet the book became an overnight publishing success. In Wildness is a wonderful pick for environmentally aware buyers, photography fans, and anyone looking for a unique book that combines literature and photography.
In Wildness is the Preservation of the World
