Henry David's House 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This is a lovely children's introduction to the philosophy of Henry David Thoreau. Contemplative young grade-school readers will admire and appreciate the observations of hearing fox footsteps on the snow crust, seeing runaway slaves passing through the forest, and camping in the open-air until enough lumber was chopped to construct the single-room house at the edge of the woods. And with most contemporary school children leading stressful, over-scheduled lives, who will be able to resist Thoreau's dream of leaving the rat race behind, in favor of going 'to the woods' in search of a simpler life. 'Henry David's House' is a lush, beautifully constructed tribute to Thoreau's essence, just when it seems we need it most.
