A Winter Walk

New England transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau’s 1843 essay “A Winter Walk” is a loving celebration of winter and walking. Thoreau vividly renders the winter season, writing of its sparkling beauty, its purity, and its stillness, and perfectly describing the warmth, coziness, and cheer to be found back at the home hearth.
