It was more than half a century ago when Thoreau, plunging deep into the wilderness of the Katahdin country, got his first taste of the ecstasies of existence in the great Maine woods. We have his own enthusiastic account of the trip -- of endless windings up river, lake and stream; of panoramic splendors by green -- girt shores and forest-covered ridges; and of life ideal in silent sylvan fastnesses. He went to seek a wilderness; he found a mammoth park of nature's most picturesque making, where naught but great green forests covered hill and dale as far as eye could see and where sinuous waterways offered the only path by which the traveler could get in touch with this wildly rugged land of beauty.
