Editorial Reviews

Review

“The book that made [Thoreau] one of the most beloved American writers, regarded by many as the country’s first environmentalist.” —The New York Times

“A fantastically good book, and Thoreau’s unadorned style feels shockingly contemporary.” —The Atlantic

“After 150 years, Walden endures.” —Mother Jones

About the Author

Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862) was an American author and naturalist. A leading figure of Transcendentalism, he is best remembered for Walden, an account of the two years he spent living in a cabin on the north shore of Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts, and for Civil Disobedience, an essay that greatly influenced the abolitionist movement and the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

I have read this a number of times and still it holds up as one of the greatest works of literature written certainly by an American and perhaps one of top 100 works of literature ever written.

In college, my professor noted, 'This book will change your life!' He was right.

My English teacher recommended this because she is obsessed with Thoreau. We read sections of it in class, but I am so glad that I decide to read the entire thing. It changed my view on the work and on humanity as a whole and the impacts of nature.

At the of 18 I read thus book and enjoyed it. I chose a few phrases and have quoted them for many years. I recently read it again and because of my life experience, I found much more of his writing extremely meaningful.

I first read this book in high school. Since then, I have re-read Walden many times. This book is a must read for everyone. As a Teenager it is good. As an Adult, it is great.

Great Read. If you have visited or have read about Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau's descriptions, musings, and thoughts will have special meaning - it's good to revisit these classics to understand the importance of these historical writers to our sense of America, love of nature, and self-reliance.

Walden is an old literary classic. While reading todays books don't miss out on this classic.

I loved the book. I wonder why it took me so long to finally read a classic.
