John Gibson’s new hiking guide, “In High Places,” examines Henry David Thoreau’s attitudes and journeys through the mountains of Maine. Not only is Thoreau a celebrated author and philosopher, but he was also an enthusiast of the “art of walking,” and self-reportedly spent at least four hours everyday walking in nature. The book provides maps of the trails Thoreau hiked — some of which he created himself by bushwhacking, reports the Bangor Daily News — and are complemented by photographs and information Gibson gleaned firsthand by hiking these trails himself.
