thoreau lied

So i found it interesting that i actually talked to somebody about the text we were reading this week outside of class. I was telling one of my guy friends about the book and why we were reading it and what not. He then told me that he went to Europe this summer and got some limited edition version of walden. He said it was one of his favorite reads and he was really enjoying reading it during his backpacking jounrney in Europe. While he was reading it he said he met somebody who told him that Thoreau didn't actually live as naturalistic as he said he did. Apparently his mom lived near by and would make him meals a couple times a week. He would go over there and eat. Doesn't this go against the whole point of his composition? It really pissed me off. If this is true then thoreau is a liar. not cool.
