Is there a text version of Thoreau's Jornal? (the entire journal) offers his complete journal as PDFs, which I'm reading, but the scans are terrible and it is hard to slog through them. I have googled and amazoned looking for better versions without luck. I can find excellent quality examples of selected items, but I'm looking for the entire thing, all 14 volumes for my ereader.

Thoreau's haircut strategy

Has anyone read Thoreau's "Walden"? Does he mention whether, and how he cuts his own hair?
