AH, Thoreau, you hit my nerv. I even have a T-Shirt with a sentence from him "If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away". He is also in Germany quite popular. We have a magazine called 'Walden' (just for real man ... I think they didn't get the point), and also a fashion blog recommended the book.
