  1. “Surveyor, author, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, historian, and transcendentalist.” And arsonist. Let’s not forget that little episode.

      1. Found some info about a forest fire he started in 1844 burning about 300 acres. It was deemed an accident and may have pushed him further into his interest in the environment. I’ll post it. Thanks for heading me in this direction.
