KIRKUS REVIEW

There is no doubt that Thoreau ""heard a different drummer."" In this gentle biography of a gentle but courageous man, Sterling North elaborates on the New England background of the young Thoreau, his early unrequited love, and his consistent nostalgia, once he had entered the cosmopolitan literary world, for the simple pleasures of his native New England. Sterling North, author of Edison's biography, devotes particular attention to Thoreau's life at Walden.
