Henry David Thoreau

Roberta Schultz reviews The Political Thought of Henry David Thoreau: Privatism and the Practice of Philosophy by Northern Kentucky University Professor Jonathan McKenzie.

The Adventures of Henry Thoreau: A Young Man's Unlikely Path to Walden Pond tells the story of how the young man who had trouble holding a job became an early voice in the environmental movement. The author, Michael Sims, is on the phone with our Kelly Blewett to talk about Thoreau’s early years, before Walden Pond.
