About the Author

Henry David Thoreau was an American author, poet, and philosopher, who is best known for his works Waldena treatise about living in concert with the natural worldand Civil Disobedience, in which he espoused the need to morally resist the actions of an unjust state. Thoreau s work heavily reflects the ideologies of the American transcendentalists, and he has long been considered a leading figure in the movement along with Ralph Waldo Emerson, Bronson Alcott, and, at first, Nathaniel Hawthorne (who changed his views later in life). In addition to his writing, which totaled more than twenty volumes, Thoreau was an active abolitionist, and lectured regularly against the Fugitive Slave Law. Thoreau died in 1862, and is buried along with Louisa May Alcott, Ellery Channing, and other notable Americans in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Concord, Massachusetts.

The item was delivered in excellent conditions. Regarding the content itself, I am very pleased. The book is deep, a balsamic reading for those who have ever experienced solitude or stood up for their principles and never forgot about them.

These books and literature are just the kind that should be mandatory in educational classrooms. They seem second to a bible. The writer is very direct and strong spirited. As well as many of the other titles that I have explored, I have a very good bookshelf collection that I would suggest to any person in hopes of expanding their horizon... In fact, I have made a habit of giving this literature as gifts.
One especially excellent book about the preserving of Walden Pond and Woods,included amazing writings from Musical Artist Don Henley {The Eagles}. He states the strength of his thoughts and feelings about his beliefs of preserving nature and the making goodness out of society.
For a writer {Ralph Waldo Emerson}so far back in years, he seems to have been "born before his time", knowing so much about what we need.
Most enchanting....
