Critical sites about Walden

Castles Made of Sand: Thoreau on the Seashore
“In 1849, Thoreau walked the length of Cape Cod with his friend the poet Ellery Channing. The material from this trip, originally developed as a course of lectures, provided the basis for the book Cape Cod, which was published in 1865, almost three years after his death. Thoreau returned to the Cape three more times in his life in the summers of 1850, 1855 and 1857. Unlike Walden, Cape Cod was fairly well received when it was originally presented in a lecture series in 1849 and magazine vignettes in 1855.”
