The Adventures of Henry Thoreau -- A Young Man's Unlikely Path to Walden Pond,
by Michael Sims.
The author begins this book with Thoreau's childhood, and ends when Thoreau is in his late twenties.  Much of it is derived from writings of his nineteenth century contemporaries.  In the author's words, "My own book moves toward and culminates in this turning point (Thoreau's 2 years at Walden Pond- writing of 'A Week"  and beginning of 'Walden') as a quirky but talented young man named Henry evolves into  an original and insightful writer named Thoreau."
Hardback, 6 x 9 inch format, 372 pp.
Published:  February, 2014.
