In July 1845, Henry David Thoreau built a small cottage in the woods near Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. During the two years and two months he spent there, he began to write Walden , a chronicle of his communion with nature.

With their call for "simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!”, for self-honesty, and for harmony with nature, the writings of Henry David Thoreau are perhaps the most influential philosophical works in all American literature.

Excellent. I own it but have not rushed to finish it due to other reading obligations, however it is the totem of reflection, with richer detail than most contemporary fiction.
