Henry David Thoreau: Walden


Henry David Thoreau’s Walden has become one of the most widely read and influential books ever written.  

It reveals the astounding range, subtlety, artistry, and depth of thought of this true American original.

Published in hundreds of editions and translated into virtually every modern language, it has not been out of print since 1854.

*Contains exclusive content: Thoreau’s Walden: Prayers For Spiritual Concordance, a critical and cultural assessment by Rachel Lefkowitz.

Walden and Leaves Of Grass have emerged over time as the two great testaments of American individualism, assuring the New World, traditional reassurances failing, of the value, power, and beauty of the unfettered self.
—John Updike

With Walden, Thoreau’s immortality is assured.
—Robert Frost
