Book Description:
In 1845 Henry David Thoreau left his pencil manufacturing business and began building a cabin on the shore of Walden Pond near Concord, Massachusetts. This lyrical yet practical minded book is at once a record of the 26 months Thoreau spent in withdrawal from society an account of the daily minutiae of building, planting, hunting, cooking, and, always, observing nature and a declaration of independence from the oppressive mores of the world he left behind. Elegant, witty, and quietly searching, Walden remains the most persuasive American argument for simplicity of life clarity of conscience.

For the first time, the authoritative editions of works by major American novelists, poets, scholars, and essayists collected in the hardcover volumes of The Library of America are being published singly in a series of handsome paperback books. A distinguished writer has contributed an introduction for each volume, which also includes a chronology of the author's life and career, an essay on the text, and notes.


From the Trade Paperback edition.
