To the Best of Our Knowledge: Henry David Thoreau
Henry David Thoreau died 150 years ago, and he’s still a great American icon. But have you ever wondered exactly why? Thoreau wasn’t exactly the model environmentalist he’s often made out to be. And his account of living at Walden Pond is partly fictionalized; he spent nine years writing and revising it. "To the Best of our Knowledge" on Wisconsin Public Radio examines Thoreau’s legacy and why he still inspires us.
