Description

An innovative and beautiful new take on a beloved classic. Walden; or, Life in the Woods is one of the
world’s most widely read books, having sold millions upon millions of copies. Thoreau’s 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 today’s fast-paced world. This edition draws us even
more profoundly into Thoreau’s musings: it features highlighted passages to ponder, an introduction that
examines the text from a contemporary perspective, and reflective writing exercises. These special
extras, with Thoreau’s provocative words, provide further motivation for cultivating happiness and making
positive life changes.
