Thoreau: A Sublime Life

Written by A. Dan and Maximilien Le Roy | NBM Publishing | March 2016

"To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity and trust."


This graphic novel biography relates the forward-looking, inspirational life of the great author, philosopher and pioneering ecologist. Henry David Thoreau was also the father of the concept, still fresh today (viz. Occupy Wall Street), of "civil disobedience," which he used against slavery and the encroachment of government.
