About this title


Presents the life and philosphies of this country's premier idealist

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-- This biography deftly integrates Thoreau's messages of harmony with nature, simplicity of living, and civil liberty into the story of his life. Passages from Walden and lesser-known works add richness and authenticity to the text. Miller, who in a preface acknowledges building a replica of the celebrated Walden cabin, opens the book with Thoreau's sojourn at Walden Pond. Subsequent chapters treat various aspects of the writer's life, including his association with the transcendentalists and his last years as a surveyor and pencil-maker. An intriguing epilogue assesses the man's literary standing from his death in 1862 to recent times. The black-and-white illustrations are of average quality and predictable subject matter. A bibliographic essay of wide scope offers sources for serious students. Balanced, informative, and well written, this title will enhance any YA literature/biography collection. --Pat Katka, San Diego Public Library
