Henry David Thoreau's classic account of his time spent in solitude in the woods by Walden Pond having left Concord, Massachusetts in 1845, disdainful of America's growing commercialism and industrialism. It is full of Transcendentalist yearning for spiritual truth and self-reliance as well as observation of nature.

From Library Staff

"When I wrote the following pages, or rather the bulk of them, I lived alone, in the woods, a mile from any neighbor, in a house which I had built myself, on the shore of Walden Pond." Walden has inspired self-realization for many.
