Publisher 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 thiry 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.

“D. B. Johnson cleverly introduces young readers to these important historical figures. No moralizing here, just a gentle, humorous look at the different paths each person may choose in life.”

— Amazon.com, editorial review 


  • “Johnson’s adaptation of a paragraph taken from Thoreau’s Walden illuminates the contrast between materialistic and naturalistic view of life without ranting or preaching.”

    — Booklist (starred review)
  • “A nicely realized retelling of a short passage from Henry Thoreau’s Walden.”

    — School Library Journal (starred review)
  • “Johnson implies what money can and cannot buy, and encourages slowing down to experience nature. With graceful understatement, he presents some complicated ideas assuredly and accessibly.”
