"Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star."
--from WALDEN by Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American author, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, and leading transcendentalist.[1] He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay Civil Disobedience, an argument for individual resistance to civil government in moral opposition to an unjust state.

By JOHN PIPKIN
Reviewed by BRENDA WINEAPPLE

This novel of a young Thoreau setting fire to 300 acres of Concord forest is in effect a wily prequel to “Walden.”
