Written by American transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, the book is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. Walden details Thoreau’s experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond a midst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson.
First published in 1854, this edition is derived from the book published in 1910 with 33 black and white illustrations by Clifton Johnson.
