Essentially Thoreau lived as a man with dominion over the land and he did well. He doesn't demand everyone be like him but he does encourage it. Things like "temperance lends to nobility" (I'm paraphrasing) ring true.
Something for everybody who can read non-fiction is in this piece.
Which is not a bad idea. I think that everyone should take some time off from their everyday BS , and exile themselves from everyone for awhile.
This book is different. It requires no report, and it is not a journey one could judge in the standard manner. This book is a treatise of introspection, and a journey of discovery. It allows the reader to become a better person without having to make the sacrifice. This book is one of the most valuable pieces of literature ever written.
...but you have to read it.
As I re-read this seminal book I was reminded of all of the reasons I first loved this book. It will cause you to reflect not only upon your life but upon the planet we all share.
Kindle formatting is acceptable. Not perfect but when a book is free how can I complain.
