Walden or, Life in the Woods, is, primarily, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. Henry David Thoreau kept a journal during his stay in a cabin beside Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts, for two years, two months, and two days, from July 1845 to Sept 1847. The book is based on that journal. In addition to being a beautiful tribute to the joys of a simple life, to Nature, the seasons, and the animals in the area, this is a profound work dealing with the illusions permeating civilized society and the real meaning and purpose of life. Critics today regard Walden as a classic that explores natural simplicity, harmony, and beauty as models for just social and cultural conditions. Download and start listening now!

    " 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. "

Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862) was an American essayist, naturalist, philosopher, and poet. Born at Concord, Massachusetts, and educated at Harvard, he began his career as a teacher. Through his older friend and neighbor, Ralph Waldo Emerson, he became a part of the Transcendentalist circle and one of that group’s most eloquent spokespersons. He is best known for his book, Walden, and his essay, “On the Duty of Civil Disobedience.”
