  • Genre: Americas


This volume contains two of Alexis de Tocqueville’s best-loved essays: “A Visit to Lake Oneida” and “A Fortnight in the Wilderness”. 

Rather than considering politics and culture as he did in his famous work, Democracy in America, in these essays de Tocqueville reports on his travels in the wilds of the northeastern USA. He considers nature, the environment and how they are changing. 

Through the accounts of this famous Frenchman, we are given a rare insight into the colonization of the USA in 
the 1830s.
