About this product
- DescriptionIn July 1845, Henry David Thoreau built a small cottage in the woods near Walden Pond, Massachusetts. During the two years spend there, he began to write 'Walden', his most important work, a chronicle of his communion with nature that became one of the most influential books in Western literature.
- Author BiographyHenry Thoreau was born in Concord, Massachusetts, in 1817, and attended Concord Academy and Harvard. After a short time spent as a teacher, he worked as a surveyor and a handyman, sometimes employed by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Between 1845 and 1847 Thoreau lived in a house he had made himself on Emerson's property near to Walden Pond. During this period he completed A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers and wrote the first draft of Walden, the book that is generally judged to be his masterpiece. He died of tuberculosis in 1862, and much of his writing was published posthumously.

travel size classic on a budget,
A small format hardback with very thin paper stock. Good for travel read but does not sit well in the book case. And small print for good eyes only.
