Maine Hiking Guide Inspired By Thoreau (Bangor Daily News)

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.

    Shouldn’t the word “complimented” in the last sentence be “complemented?”

    (Unless, of course, the photographs & information said nice things about the maps!)
