Customer Review

on 13 May 2009
This book is an in depth study to "A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers" and "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau and is aproached in a sensative way reflecting the fame of the ideas that Thoreau spread via Count Leo Tolstoy to Mahatma Gandhi reinventing the Sancrit word {Ahimsa} none violence into modern usage.
This book is a deeper look into different angles of the wisdom that Thoreau dismininated in his journals from reflextions from old Vedic scriptures with an interlctual trend that continued through to beyond Dr Martin Luther King and the movement of the nineteen sixties.
In all its a book that continues with a sympathetic view onto the ideas of Thoreau as the growth emerges from his closeness to nature and a profound care for all beings. Thoreau was one of the direct action man living in a time of delusion who is much negelected in these days of media hype and worship of the mighty dollar.
