An innovative and beautiful new take on a beloved classic.
Walden; or, Life in the Woods is one of the worlds most widely read books, having sold millions upon millions of copies. Thoreaus timeless reflections on his two-year sojourn of self-reliance by Walden Pond still inspire us to search for deeper meaning, greater harmony, and more serenity in todays fast-paced world.
This pocket-size edition draws us even more profoundly into Thoreaus musings: it features highlighted passages to ponder, an introduction that examines the text from a contemporary perspective, and reflective writing exercises (with lined pages to write on). These special extras, with Thoreaus provocative words, provide further motivation for cultivating happiness and making positive life changes.
