Design includes an image of Thoreau and the words – ‘In my opinion, the sun was made to light worthier toil than this.’
Born in Concord, Massachusetts on July 12, 1817, Thoreau became one of the most important American writers of the 19th Century.
Best known for his exploration of simple living in ‘Walden’, Thoreau also wrote such classic essays as ‘Civil Disobedience’ and ‘Life without Principle’.
A bold design honoring a bold American!
Makes a great gift idea for students of American history
