Henry David Thoreau and Thomas Merton, were two very influential writers who wrote contemplative works about solitude and developing a connection with nature. Thoreau’s most famous work “Walden” discusses the authors experiences during the two years he lived consciously, in a cabin in the woods, along with the multitude of lessons he learned. Thomas Merton, a twentieth century writer, wrote several letters to Rachel Carson discussing the importance of caring for the environment from a Catholic perspective.
