Welcome to Green Frigate

Titles published under the Green Frigate Books imprint aim to explore the horizons of the natural and built environments, and the relations of humans within them. The goal of the imprint is to reach its readership by producing works that fall in the cracks between those offered by traditional academic and popular presses. Specific categories include ‘Design, Interiors and Architecture’ and ‘The natural and built environments’. In common with Libri Books, the imprint should be of interest particularly for members of ‘communities of practice’ in the natural and built environments.

Profitably Soaked

A century of academic scholarship has left us with an incredibly dull and dry image of Thoreau as the moping detached intellectual or the reflective nature mystic. In this collection of quotations compiled from all of Thoreau’s works and arranged under the headings Adventure, Joy, Contact, and Contemplation, editor Robert France counters this prevalent view through nothing less than resurrecting Thoreau—bringing him back to the life that he so fully lived. This work clearly demonstrates that Thoreau was very much the thirsting sensualist, using his body at every opportunity as the way in which to engage the world. And it was water, above all else, that served as the means for Thoreau’s deepest immersion into nature.
