No Englishman did more in the nineteenth century to advance the literary reputation of Henry David Thoreau than Henry S. Salt. A biographer and literary critic as well as a remarkable reformer who participated broadly in his era's movements for social change, Salt abandoned his mastership at Eton in the 1880s to devote himself to causes including socialism, vegetarianism, animals' rights, conservation, and prison reform. In 1890 Salt published the initial version of Thoreau's Life.

Henry David Thoreau (see name pronunciation; July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American essayist, poet, and philosopher

Henry David Thoreau (see name pronunciation; July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American essayist, poet, and philosopher. A leading transcendentalist, he is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay "Civil Disobedience" (originally published as "Resistance to Civil Government"), an argument for disobedience to an unjust state.

Henry Salt's excellent biography of Thoreau helped popularize HDT's thought in Europe. More importantly, Salt befriended a young Gandhi who came to London to study law. From Salt Gandhi first learned of Thoreau's ideas on civil disobedience which he would put into practice in the Indian independence movement. Then through Gandhi's influence on Martin Luther King, Thoreau's influence returned to his own country.

The Life of Henry David Thoreau insightfully describes how he took the concept self reliance as described by Emerson and built a life of integrity based on that principle. Thoreau graduated from Harvard and took a job as a teacher only to quit after only two weeks because he refused to use corporal punishment in his classroom. His time at Walden Pond is described in detail as well his abolitionist activities including his support of John Brown.

Salt also describes Thoreau's deep connection with nature and his fascination with what eastern religions had to say about the relationship between humans and the rest of nature (Thoreau had the largest collection of books about eastern thought in the United States.)

Salt displays a deep affection for Thoreau's personality and defends him from common beliefs that he was cold as a person. Although he valued his time alone, Thoreau enjoyed warm friendships with people of all sorts in Concord and was especially beloved by children for his exceptional ability to guide them on nature walks and explain the cycle of the seasons.

Salt correctly notes that Thoreau did not grasp the social and economic forces that later generations began to realize had powerful sway on individuals and societies. This book aptly captures what Thoreau did understand as reflected in the groundbreaking work he did in describing the natural world, critiquing society and creating a new American voice in literature.

Anyone who is interested in learning more about Henry Thoreau should read this book. An insightful, readable biography by an Englishman, which makes it even more unique.

If you want to know one of the important ingredients to the success of the Civil Rights Movement than this is a must have.

Widespread fame eluded Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) during his lifetime. Posthumous biographies helped to draw attention to his life in Concord and thus to his writings. These books can be shelved into four categories:
(1) His journals themselves, in addition to his books and essays, provide the closest primary information. Chronologically though, they should be ranked third because they were made available to the public more than 40 years after his death when they were first printed in 1906.
(2) A few friends and acquaintances released book-length biographies based on their personal relationships with the man. William Ellery Channing's _Thoreau: the poet-naturalist_ (1873) and Frank B. Sanborn's _American Men of Letters: Henry D. Thoreau_ (1882) are the classics.
(3) Men who were inspired by Thoreau's writings began to correspond with his Concord friends in order to learn more and to write their own books. Examples include the 1890 publications of Henry S. Salt's _Life of Henry David Thoreau_ and Samuel Arthur Jones's _Thoreau: A Glimpse_.
(4) Everyone who came afterward had to rely on interpretation of all of the writings and letters from those previous categories. The most famous remain Henry Seidel Canby (_Thoreau_, 1939) and Walter Harding (_The Days of Henry Thoreau: A Biography_, 1962).
Englishman Henry S. Salt (1851-1939) published his first Thoreau biography in 1890, and released a revision in 1896. Neither one sold well. By 1908, he was looking for a publisher to print a third and more complete edition. While he spent the rest of his life in that search, his efforts were to no avail. But he sent a copy of all of his material to Professor Raymond Adams of the University of North Carolina, in the hopes that the professor would be able to use it for publication. Dr. Adams was too daunted when Henry Canby's book was released in 1939, and so Henry Salt's notes were archived with his own. That is, until they were found and reprinted here. The result is the best revision of Salt's meticulous research and correspondence, augmented by minor corrections made by the 20th-century compilers.
Salt was a genuine Thoreau disciple, and so this biography paints a positive picture of the man. It's probably my second favorite, with Canby's being first. There may still be a few small errors that weren't fixed. (Thoreau's companion on the Minnesota trip was Horace Mann *Jr.*, a title needed to distinguish him from his more famous father.) Overall, though, this book is a welcome addition to the ranks, and we are lucky that the editors found the manuscript, prepared it, and shared it with the rest of us.
