Overview

This edition of Walden is specially formatted with illustrations and a Touch-or-Click Table of Contents.

Henry David Thoreau was born David Henry Thoreau on July 12, 1817 in Concord, Massachusetts. Mr. Thoreau was an author, poet, abolitionist, naturalist, surveyor, transcendentalist, and philosopher. Thoreau’s works intertwine his love of history philosophy and nature. Many of his theories about environmental history and ecology are still applied today.

Thoreau’s book Walden, originally published in August 9, 1854, reflects on his journey and goal of living as simply as possible with limited possessions in a natural setting. Poet Robert Frost wrote, “In one book…[Thoreau] surpasses everything we have had in America.”

John Updike wrote, “A century and a half after its publication, Walden has become such a totem of the back-to-nature, preservationist, anti-business, civil-disobedience mindset, and Thoreau so vivid a protester, so perfect a crank and hermit saint, that the book risks being as revered and unread as the Bible.”

In his influential and critically acclaimed book, Thoreau focuses on the idea of survival and how he could survive with very little. Thoreau advocated abandoning things that are not needed to survive in order to discover meaning in life.

    Focus on the ever-present duality of America!

    First off, understand two things: a) Thoreau wrote this over 150 years ago, and so neither the prose nor the pacing conforms to late-20th-century expectations. b) the man hits on many concepts that STILL provoke heated debate 150 years later! This book identifies important currents in American life... our love/hate relationship with the environment; our willingness to stick our nose into other peoples' problems, telling them how to solve them - yet blithely ignoring our own problems; and the all-consuming need for money. If you want to read a book that encourages Americans to sit back and think seriously about how we live our lives, then this is a great place to start - as long as you note the caveat up top!

    Best book ever!

    I have a hardcopy, paperback and now a digital copy. I think everyone would benefit from reading this book. I get lost in this book for hours at a time. I always want Thoreau with me! This book is full of wisdom. Living a life as close to Thoreau's as possible makes his words hit close to home for me. Simplify, Simplify!

    A wonderful classic by an accomplished author.

    This is the ultimate classic of political philosophy. Thank you for making a low cost Nook edition.
