As the leading Transcendentalist after Emerson, Henry David Thoreau accepts and expands the teachings of "self-reliance." He refused to pay a tax that would affirm the abominable practice of slavery. He goes to jail - but only for one night; Emerson paid his friend's fine. Thus: civil disobedience. How he can justify a defense of John Brow is another matter. Please be aware, dear reader, that it took OVER one month for my book to arrive after I had ordered and paid for it. Prompt delivery and "media mail" are not close cousins at Alibris.
