Naming Mt. Thoreau

Edited by Laurie Glover

Featuring art, photos, and essays by: Michael Blumlein, Dick Bryan, Darryl DeVinney, Hilary Gordon, Tom Killion, Paul Park, David Robertson, Kim Stanley Robinson, Carter Scholz, Gary Snyder, and Christopher Woodcock

Naming Mt. Thoreau is a collection of essays that arose from the simple undertaking of ascending a mountain; it is a meditation on friendship and influence, proximity and distance.

This compilation’s authors started out to rename USGS peak 12,691 “Mt. Thoreau” to honor Henry David Thoreau for his writing that has been so important to generations of Americans seeking to define their relationship to wilderness and nature.

Taking their cues from Thoreau, they offer this collective set of texts and images as a call to close attention. Not just to what is present but to what is not, but still is. 

The above description is adapted from the introduction by Laurie Glover

Naming Mt. Thoreau, paperback, Artemisia Press, 167 pages, 6˝x 9˝
