Publisher's Summary

Noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau spent two years, two months, and two days chronicling his near-isolation in the small cabin he built in the woods near Walden Pond on land owned by his mentor, the father of Transcendentalism, Ralph Waldo Emerson. Immersing himself in nature and solitude, Thoreau sought to develop a greater understanding of society amidst a life of self-reliance and simplicity. Originally published in 1854, Walden remains one of the most celebrated works in American literature. This version of Walden, or Life in the Woods was recorded as part of Walden and On the Duty of Civil Disobedience.

An excellent reading of a classic book

I have read portions of this book many times but this may be the first time I am able to enjoy the entire book straight through. I am a great fan of Thoreau and his philosophy of simplicity. I particularly enjoy listening while out on a walk. The reader does a very good job of keeping me engaged and his voice sounds like he is from the 1800s- I cannot explain that clearly, but I do believe it to be true. I feel as though it is Thoreau reading to me. Also, his animal sounds are very well done! I expect that I will listen to this book many times and each time I will glean more valuable information from it. I would recommend it to anyone interested in Thoreau or his works.
