Review quote

"A beautifully written and very sympathetic short biography of Thoreau that all Thoreauvians should treasure... Salt was just the person to write about Thoreau. He was in complete sympathy with Thoreau's ideas, and he wrote about them and him beautifully." Thoreau Society Journal "For the newcomer to Thoreau, Salt provides a readable and sensitive introduction... It is good to see the definitive version of Salt's work finally published." George Trefgarne The Times (London) "Of all the biographers of Thoreau, Henry Salt best captures Thoreau's spirit." Walter Harding, author of The Days of Henry Thoreau
