About Henry Shakespear Stephens Salt

Henry Stephen Salt (1851–1939) was an English writer and campaigner for social reform whose work brought him praise from the likes of Mahatma Gandhi. Whatever humanitarian cause he chose to write about he demonstrated great logic and wit to show the folly of those who opposed progress.

His studies of Thoreau, Shelley and Jefferies remain among the most insightful. In particular, his Life of Henry David Thoreau is regarded by many as one the finest on the subject. His classic Animals' Rights Considered in Relation to Social Progress is still in print today.
