Traces the reception of Henry Thoreau's work from the time of his death to his ascendancy as an environmental icon in the 1970s, revealing insights into American culture's conception of the environment. Moving decade by decade through this period, Judd unveils a cache of commentary from intellectuals, critics, and journalists to demonstrate the dynamism in the idea of nature, as Americans defined and redefined the organic world around them amidst shifting intellectual, creative, and political forces. Tells the captivating story of one writer's rise from obscurity to fame through a cultural reappraisal of the work he left behind. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin 306, Summer 2019, pp. 10-11.
University of Massachusetts Press, 2018. Paperback, 217 pp.
