Walden (first published as Walden; or, Life in the Woods) is an American book written by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, it details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. The book compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development. Download and start listening now!

    " Maybe not all of it's true but all of it's definitely beautiful. "

    " After opening the cover to read the first few lines of the book, I found myself reading page 8 before I looked up to catch my breath! It's safe to say that as soon as i'm done with this book, i'll be treating myself to some Emerson! "

    " Read about half of Walden while I was hiking the John Muir Trail. It was perfect for that setting. I'd like to finish it someday. Perhaps when I'm out on another adventure. "

    " In this edition, Harding provides marginal notes to explain various references in the text, such as people and places that Thoreau mentions, Biblical allusions, or unfamiliar terminology. "

    " I read the Finnish translation of the Walden. Surprisingly current thoughts, though some of them where quite amusing, because they were way too critical. Can´t help thinking of; what if people would have lived differently the past 100 years or so. "

    " A life changing book if you're young enough and you read it your last free summer. "
