About the Book:
When the pandemic struck, nature writer David Gessner turned to Henry David Thoreau, the original social distancer, for lessons on how to live. Those lessons--of learning our own backyard, re-wilding, loving nature, self-reliance, and civil disobedience--hold a secret that could help save us as we face the greater crisis of climate.
