Henry David Thoreau lived during the 1800’s.  He was a naturalist [person who studied nature] who wrote many beautiful observations of nature in his journals.  During part of his life, he lived alone in a tiny cabin in the woods, on Walden Pond.

One of the reasons that he did this was to be as close to nature as possible.  Because he carefully observed, Thoreau’s descriptions of nature are stunning.  File:VII. Rowse.jpg
