From the Publisher

Our school is named after Henry David Thoreau. The property on whichthe school is located is Camp Thoreau, a children’s summer camp. It isalso our year round home. What is more, the property is an old familyfarm which we try to keep in production.Henry David Thoreau taught school himself for a few years. I would liketo think that he might have approved of some of the things that we havedone here, although I know he would disapprove of the folly of owninga property of this size. Thoreau believed that owning a farm is a type ofslavery.Thoreau left behind somegood advice for writers ofbooks:“The writer,” he said “does not make booksout of books,but he has beenthere in person.”Hence this record of the four years in which I directed the Thoreau School.
