Founded in 1941, the Thoreau Society is the oldest and largest society in the world devoted to the legacy of an American author. The Society draws members from an unusually wide range of interests and professions. It operates the Shop at Walden Pond, and its publications include the annual journal The Saunterer and the quarterly Thoreau Society Bulletin. In partnership with the Walden Woods Project, it has formed the Thoreau Institute at Walden Woods, an important research and educational center, which houses the collections of the Thoreau Society.

I DON'T THINK THOREAU EITHER LIKED OR KNEW MUCH ABOUT DOGSApril 25 2008
- Published on Amazon.com
I found this book to be other than I expected. I thought this famous philosopher who wrote Walden Pond, for which he is famous, would have owned and loved many dogs. His oservations are mostly about neighborhood dogs, and usually not particularly sympathetic. Obviously Thoreau was no Albert Payson Terhune, and probably wouldn't have been interested in Lassy or Rin Tin Tin. If you are dog simple like me, pass this one up.
