Description

It isn't how fast you get someplace, but what you do along the way: that's the philosophy behind this story about two friends who agree to meet 30 miles away in Fitchburg. In this story inspired by Thoreau's WALDEN, Henry elects to take a very long nature walk, while his friend chooses to work to earn his train fare.

Reviews

"…a thought-provoking adaptation…(an) entertaining video." - Booklist
"…a light-hearted introduction to the Transcendental ideas of Henry David Thoreau. Though targeted to younger children, this would also be a lively addition to classes on Transcendentalism for older students." - School Library Journal
