Antioch Grad Published Nature Book

Walking with Thoreau book coverMichael Jacobson-Hardy ‘67 recently published Walking with Thoreau, which shows the “universe unfolding” in a series of 33 photographs of New England nature, positioned alongside the text of Henry David Thoreau. Hardy noted that his goal was to remind people to appreciate nature and to imagine walking “in the footsteps of one of the forefathers of environmentalism.” Of Thoreau, Hardy said, “As Thoreau took action through his living, walking, and writing, we too can live in ways that take action to protect our natural resources and environments. It is in experiencing and valuing nature that we can move toward action.”

Bill McKibben wrote, “This book will be a great treat for any lover of Thoreau or any lover of the damp and dramatic New England forest.”

Both Michael and his wife, Ruth ’79, are alumni of Antioch and we are fortunate to be able to share news of his book. Learn more about Walking with Thoreau here
