Henry Thoreau's Walden is one of the most influential books in early American literature. It recounts the author's experiences living in a small house in the woods around Walden Pond in Massachusetts in the 1840s. His attempt to live independently and away from society produced a work that blends natural history with philosophical insights, and which raises questions that are still relevant today.

With an Afterword by Sam Gilpin.
