In 1845, Henry David Thoreau left his home in Concord, Massachusetts to live a contemplative life in the remote house that he built himself by the tranquil Walden Pond. Throughout his two years there, he diligently chronicled his observations.

A positive and insightful look at human solitude, Walden remains a highly regarded work of transcendentalism, environmentalism, and individual enlightenment.
