Douglas R. Hochstetler - associate professor of kinesiology, Penn State Lehigh Valley

Book Title: Walden and Other Writings

Author: Henry David Thoreau

Book Description:

I grew up in Iowa, not Massachusetts. My places of residence have always been within close proximity of others, not beside a pond in solitude. Despite these differences, the writings of Henry David Thoreau have shaped both my professional and personal life in profound ways. My dissertation took seriously his call for simplicity. I hope, like Thoreau, to "live deliberately" and to "affect the quality of the day."
