He was one of the most popular writers in America for several decades of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Burroughs was influenced by the writings and philosophies of Emerson and Thoreau. He was also a close friend of Walt Whitman. Over his lifetime he travelled with some of the most prominent people of American society, including John Muir, Henry Ford, and Theodore Roosevelt.
