Thoreau map

Spring Break is the perfect time to kick back and read some Thoreau. But if you do, you may want this online Thoreau map to accompany your explorations.

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws be expanded, and interpreted in his favor in a more liberal sense, and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings.”
- Henry David Thoreau (1854)
