He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.

Henry David Thoreau July 12, 1817 - 1862. He lies in Sleepy Hollow cemetery in Concord Mass., alongside Hawthorne and Emerson… Before he died Thoreau exclaimed: “Now comes good sailing!” “A truly good book teaches me better than to read it.
