Overview

Thoughts from none less than Henry David Thoreau. He resisted government in a civil fashion. Henry not only refused unjust law but states people shouldn't allow such a government.

While there, Thoreau worked on the two books published in his lifetime: Walden and A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. The Maine Woods, Cape Cod, Excursions, and other works were published posthumously.
