Editorial Reviews

Review

As Kevin P. Van Anglen shows, Henry David Thoreau's passionate commitment to truth and to the integrity of the self has made his influence endure; reformers and writers like Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Rachel Carson all were inspired by the example of his person, his beliefs, and his writings.

(Harvard Review)

A brilliant new sampling of Thoreau's words... this collection stands as a document unto itself.... There is little that is routine or simplistic about this lovingly constructed--not to mention remarkably attractive--text. Van Anglen recognizes the breadth of intellect that underpinned the writings and utterances of Thoreau.

(The Capital Times)

Format: Hardcover
While this is a helpful collection of Thoreau's thoughts, it should be pointed out that the claim by Midwest Book Reviews is a little off base. The book, Thoughts of Thoreau, by Edwin Way Teale was published and then re-issued several years ago. It is the single best collection of Thoreau quotes to date. They are arranged by a long list of categories that the reader finds most user friendly. Not to take away from the book in question, this is only submitted to set the record straight.
