Review quote

Bill McKibben gives us Thoreau's "Walden" as the gospel of the present moment. --Robert D. Richardson, Jr., author of "Henry Thoreau: A Life of the Mind" '[Thoreau] says so many pithy and brilliant things, and offers so many piquant, and, we may add, so many just, comments on society as it is, that this book is well worth the reading, both for its actual contents and its suggestive capacity.' --A. P. Peabody, "North American Review, " 1854 '["Walden"] still seems to me the best youth's companion yet written by an American, for it carries a solemn warning against the loss of one's valuables, it advances a good argument for traveling light and trying new adventures, it rings with the power of powerful adoration, it contains religious feeling without religious images, and it steadfastly refuses to record bad news.' --E. B. White, "Yale Review, " 1954 'Bill McKibben gives us Thoreau's "Walden" as the gospel of the present moment.' -Robert D. Richardson, Jr., author of "Henry Thoreau: A Life of the Mind"
