  • "Erstmals auf Deutsch: Thoreaus meisterliche Reiseerzählung Zahlreiche Reisen führten H. D. Thoreau ab 1849 auf die Halbinsel Kap Cod in Massachusetts.Seine Aufzeichnungen zu Land und Leuten, Tieren und Pflanzen, zur Landschaft und ihrer herben Schönheit bilden die Grundlage für das posthum erschienene Buch 'Kap Cod'. Es legt Zeugnis ab von der immensen wirtschaftlichen Bedeutung des Walfangs, von der Abholzung der Wälder, der Gewalt des Ozeans, der Kargheit des Landes und der Ausdauer seiner Bewohner. Erstmals erscheint eine der grossartigsten Reiseerzählungen des 19. Jahrhunderts auf Deutsch. Ilija Trojanow, der das heutige Kap für dieses Buch bereiste, bereichert dieses literarische Juwel um seine persönliche Perspektive. Henry David Thoreau geboren 1817 in Concord, Massachusetts, 1833-1837 Studium an der Harvard University. 1845 bezieht er eine Blockhütte am Walden-See, dann arbeitet er als Landvermesser und engagiert sich öffentlich gegen die Sklaverei. Thoreau stirbt 1862 an Tuberkulose. Klaus Bonn geboren 1958, studierte Literaturwissenschaft, Anglistik und Philosophie in Mainz, freier Übersetzer, Autor und Lehrbeauftragter. Er übersetzte Thoreaus 'Briefe an einen spirituellen Sucher' (2012)."

Along the way, Thoreau relates the experiences of fishermen and oystermen, farmers and salvagers, lighthouse-keepers and ship captains, as well as his own intense confrontations with the sea as he travels the land's outermost margins. Chronicles of exploration, settlement, and survival on the Cape lead Thoreau to reconceive the history of New England--and to recognize the parochialism of history itself."
  • "This is the story those who love to walk the length of lonely beaches, for Thoreau walks alone in this book."@en
  • "Thoreau writes ten essays about the relationship between the shore and the sea."
  • "Thoreau's classic account of his meditative, beach-combing walking trips to Cape Cod in the early 1850s, reflecting on the elemental forces of the sea Cape Cod chronicles Henry David Thoreau's journey of discovery along this evocative stretch of Massachusetts coastline, during which time he came to understand the complex relationship between the sea and the shore. He spent his nights in lighthouses, in fishing huts, and on isolated farms. He passed his days wandering the beaches, where he observed the wide variety of life and death offered up by the ocean. Through these observations, Thoreau discovered that the only way to truly know the sea'its depth, its wildness, and the natural life it contained'was to study it from the shore. Like his most famous work, Walden, Cape Cod is full of Thoreau's unique perceptions and precise descriptions. But it is also full of his own joy and wonder at having stumbled across a new frontier so close to home, where a man may stand and 'put all America behind him.' Part of the Penguin Nature Library Series Editor: Edward Hoagland With an Introduction by Paul Theroux."@en
  • "This brilliant account of Thoreau's four trips to Cape Cod is often still considered the best book ever written about the area. Chronicling a fatal shipwreck, encounters with the ocean, explorations, and settlement, as well as Thoreau's reflections on the pilgrims' landing, Cape Cod has become known as the nautical Walden ."
