CONCORD'S HAPPY REBEL: Henry David Thoreau

Email this review


A sympathetic, readable, penetrating story of Henry David Thoreau which, like other biographies by this author deserves a place on anybody's bookshelves. It begins with Thoreau's parents and childhood, and carries the story through to his death in 1962. A fine picture not only of Thoreau, his greatness and his limitations, but also of Emerson, Channing, Alcott, and the others, and of the character of the New England of the times.
