This elegant hardcover edition chronicles the life of Henry David Thoreau, the 19th Century writer and philosopher from Concord, Massachusetts. Thoreau was best known as a Naturalist, and his journals are filled with daily observations of the flora and fauna of Concord. He was also an Abolitionist and was involved with the Underground Railroad; his 1849 essay “Civil Disobedience” would influence Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 20th Century.

The Short Biographies series from Applewood’s Benna Books imprint features short, intriguing, and entertaining biographies of world-renowned figures. Each beautiful hardcover book includes an interesting retelling of a single person's life, suitable for young adults and adults alike.
