He is also known for spending a night in jail for nonpayment of taxes, which he discussed in the influential essay qCivil Disobedience.q More than 150 years later, people are still inspired by his thoughtful words about individual rights, social justice, and nature. His detailed plant observations have even proven to be a useful record for 21st-century botanists. Henry David Thoreau for Kids chronicles the short but influential life of this remarkable thinker.
