Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1854, Henry David Thoreau's groundbreaking book has influenced generations of readers and continues to inspire and inform anyone with an open mind and a love of nature. With Bill McKibben providing a newly revised Introduction and helpful annotations that place Thoreau firmly in his role as cultural and spiritual seer, this beautiful edition of Walden for the new millennium is more accessible and relevant than ever.

Review:

"Aside from its timeless wisdom and quaintly poetical prose, 'Walden' is often a hoot. Through his ebulliently sourpuss observations of his fellow Concordians, delivered in a cocksure voice of a critical chanticleer and heretic herald, Henry makes us laugh, to wit: 'Sunday is the fit conclusion of an ill-spent weekend.'" Gary Wockner, Bloomsbury Review
