Massachusetts native Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was a leading member of the American Transcendentalist movement, whose faith in nature was tested while Thoreau lived in a homemade hut at Walden Pond between 1845 and 1847. While there, Thoreau worked on the two books published in his lifetime: Walden and A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers.

Envokes thoughts of necessities, while he demonstrates his vast knowledge. He definitely has disected each part of his philosohpy and portrayed it in a smooth form.

Self- reliance in the experiment of yet another great American original in his effort to live a life worthwhile, confront his true self. The language is aphoristic and poetically rich, not always easy going, but the reader will be rewarded by so much beauty and insight and such a great feeling of the life of the American observer and thinker as transcendent journey that it is well worth the extra effort. One of America's great books, and one which should be read by anyone who wishes to know its true character in love of individuality and independance.
