Reviews

A highly original and fascinating walking guide to the Cape, Adam Gamble has done a masterful job of combining history, literature, and outdoor adventure. In the Footsteps of Thoreau is the next best thing to having the 'Traveler from Concord' as our walking companion--a must for any devotee of Cape Cod or Thoreau! --Robert Finch, coeditor of the Norton Book of Nature Writing and editor of A Place Apart: A Cape Cod Reader
