Henry David Thoreau: A Life - Laura Dassow Walls
Henry David Thoreau: A Life - Laura Dassow Walls
Our Price: $35.00

Two hundred years after his birth, and two generations after the last full-scale biography, Laura Dassow Walls has written a new life of Henry David Thoreau, giving us a Thoreau in all his profound, inspiring complexity.“The Thoreau I sought was not in any book, so I wrote this one,” says Walls. The result is a Thoreau unlike any seen since he walked the streets of Concord, a Thoreau for our time and all time. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin 298, Summer 2017, p. 12.
University of Chicago Press, 2017. Hardcover, 615 pp.
