"The seasons and all their changes are in me." - Henry David Thoreau, Autumn (1892) Autumn: From the Journal of Henry D. Thoreau (1892) is the compilation of the insightful observations of nature Thoreau made from late September to early December in 1841-1859. Rather than following a yearly chronological organization, the naturalist and philosopher organized the journal by month to give the reader an in-depth view of Massachusetts and all its autumnal majesty. This work, selected by scholars as culturally important to understanding this period in history, is a must-read for lovers of Thoreau's Walden (1854) and nature.

A motherless girl hungry for hope . . . and the dream that could be leading her astray. Almost two years have passed since twelve-year-old Allie Granderson’s beloved mother, Mary, disappeared into the wild tornado winds. Her body has never been found. Allie clings to memories of her mother, just as she clings to the broken compass she left behind, the makeshift Nativity scene in the front yard, and her best friend Zach. But even with Zach at her side, the compass on her wrist, and the Nativity right outside the window, Allie cannot help but feel lost in all the growing up that must get done. When the Holy Mother disappears from the yard, Allie’s bewilderment is compounded by the sudden movement of her mother’s compass. Following the needle, Allie and Zach leave the city behind and push into the inky forest on the outskirts of Mattingly. For Allie, the journey is more than a ghost hunt: she is rejoining the mother she lost—and finding herself with each step deeper into the heart of the dark wood. Brimming with lyrical prose and unexpected discoveries, In the Heart of the Dark Wood illustrates the steep transition we all must undergo—the moment we shed our childlike selves and step into the strange territory of adulthood.
