Description

A beautiful illustrated edition of Thoreau's classic treatise on man and nature.
"Our life is frittered away by detail. . . . Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!"

Henry David Thoreau built his small cabin on the shore of Walden Pond in 1845. For the next two years, he lived there as simply as possible, learning to eliminate the unnecessary material and spiritual details that intrude upon human happiness.

Thoreau described his experiences in Walden, using vivid, forceful prose that transforms his reflections on nature into richly evocative metaphors. In a world obsessed with technology and luxury, this American classic about seeking "the essential facts of life" seems more relevant today than ever.
           
This beautiful, fully illustrated edition of Walden brings a rarely seen visual and artistic dimension to Thoreau's philosophical masterpiece.

About this Author

In March 1845, Henry David Thoreau built himself a wooden hut on the edge of Walden Pond, near Concord, MA, where he lived until September 1847. Walden is Thoreau's autobiographical account of his Robinson Crusoe existence, bare of creature comforts but rich in contemplation of the wonders of nature and the ways of man.
