To a Different Drum: The Story of Henry Davis Thoreau.
To a Different Drum The Story of Henry Davis Thoreau Author:Charles Norman Is there any young person who has not built or imagined having his own secret hideout, where he could go and leave the world behind? Henry Thoreau built such a place with his own hands and lived in it for two years when he was a young man. He has left behind in his writings a wealth of detail on how his cabin by Walden Pond in MAssachusetts was ... more »constructed, how much it cost him, what he furnished it with, and what he planted for his food. Truly, this was an experiment in living that reflected a real spirit of adventure, a strong individualism, and a deep love of nature.
This is a fascinating and inspiring book about a complex, likeable non-conformist.
The refreshing pictures by Miss Graham convey the strength and poetry in Henry Thoreau's life.
