Henry David Thoreau[[note]]Pronounced "THU-row," though [[NoPronunciationGuide most modern people pronounce it "thu-ROW."]][[/note]] was an American writer, philosopher, transcendentalist, NatureLover, and ecologist. His work on environmental history and ecology formed much of the early framework for modern environmentalism. A lifelong resident of Concord, Massachusetts, he spent two years at Walden Pond in a cabin he built for himself as an experiment in simple living, and refused to pay taxes as a protest against the UsefulNotes/MexicanAmericanWar, which he viewed as an attempt to add more slave states to the Union. In the process, he coined the term "Civil Disobedience".
