Seeing New Worlds: Henry David Thoreau and Nineteenth-century Natural Science (Science & literature series) Paperback – 31 Oct 1995. Walls is clearly the first scholar to read Thoreau thoroughly in the context both of the science of his own day and of the theory and philosophy of science in our day, in such a way as profoundly to call into question all previous work in this area and to open up questions about the very nature of science and scientific truth. Considering Thoreau as a serious, committed scientist, this book offers an alternative understanding of his accomplishment and the place of science in American literature.

Her book, the first to consider Thoreau as a serious and committed scientist, will change the way we understand his accomplishment and the place of science in American culture. Walls reveals that the scientific texts of Thoreau’s day deeply influenced his best work, from Walden to the Journal to the late natural history essays. Here we see how, just when literature and science were splitting into the two cultures we know now, Thoreau attempted to heal the growing rift.

Considering Thoreau as a serious, committed scientist, this book offers an alternative understanding of his accomplishment and the place of science in American literature. It shows how Thoreau's experience reveals the interaction between Romanticism and the dynamic, law-seeking science of its day.

Thisi is a very important and informative book that I continue to go back to since its first publication almost a decade ago. There is much to interest both the Thoreauvian scholar as well as student of natural history. As a practicing scientist and a editor of two books of Thoreau quotations, I found this work of Walls to be very helpful in increasing my own understanding of 19th century natural science/history. Indeed, I make reference to Walls' book in my own Profitably Soaked: Thoreau's Engagement With Water (Green Frigate Books, 2003).

I was so fascinated by Laura Dassow Walls' unique take on Thoreau that I was inspired to complete my own graduate work on Transcendentalism. Any student of Thoreau will appreciate this innovative look at the old master.
