"Synopsis" by , Walden, Henry David Thoreau's vision of personal freedom, is indelibly etched on the American consciousness. Included here with the complete text of Walden are selections from Thoreau's first book, "A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers; " "A Plea for Captain John Brown", his eloquent defense of the American abolitionist's rebellion at Harper's Ferry, and such masterpieces as his famous essay "Civil Disobedience", in which he describes a night spent in prison for refusing to pay a poll tax to a government that condoned slavery. This edition is edited by Brooks Atkinson, with a new Introduction.
