Walking With Henry

Based on the Life and Works of Henry David Thoreau

Setting out alone in the pathless wilderness, a young Thoreau walks wherever he wants during the day, guided by moose tracks and by the sounds of a waterfall and the promise of a mountaintop view. Huddling close to the warmth of his campfires by night, he whittles a walking stick until it fits his hand perfectly. “It wasn’t too short or long. It wasn’t too thick or thin. Like the wilderness, it was the way it should be.” Henry weathers a storm, turns homeward, and recognizes familiar rocks and trees: “…like meeting old friends or even family.” This gentle story introduces readers to the wealth of nature and its greatest advocate. Ages nine to twelve.
