About the Author

Henry David Thoreau, (July 12, 1817 - May 6, 1862), a surveyor by trade and a naturalist by heart, Thoreau became one of the principal American authors of the 19th century abolitionist movement. His two best known works are Resistance to Civil Government (a.k.a. On Civil Disobedience) and Walden (an introspection on the merits of simple living). He graduated from Harvard in 1837 and shortly thereafter he met his life-long friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson. He spent many years working in the family business of pencil-making, rediscovered and later implemented a forgotten process of combining clay and graphite to successfully produce low-cost pencils. Ironically, in 1844 he accidentally set fire to Walden Woods and nearly burned to the ground the area near Walden Pond where over the course of the next few years he would write his most famous philosophical work on nature and austerity. In 1846 he was arrested for tax evasion and chose to accept a jail sentence rather than pay the tax; this incident led to his famous lyceum lectures on the relation of an individual's duty to resist civil government when government is unjust. Charly Gullett (editor) was trained as a photo-journalist in the U.S. Army Defense Information School during the Viet Nam era in 1971. He spent most of his adult life as a self-taught applications engineer specializing in Robotics, Digital Instrumentation and Analog Computer Design. Retiring in 1996 from Intel Corp. as a senior technical author, Gullett was awarded their highest individual achievement award for his ground-breaking work in Artificial Intelligence. Additionally, Gullett's career has included work as a professional photographer, cabinet maker, college teacher, a firearms dealer, and a professional artist who has illustrated over thirty books. He has authored the the Warfield Activist Series on law, history, political activism and American exceptionalism.
