Henry David Thoreau was a sturdy individualist and a
lover of nature. In March, 1845, he built himself a wooden hut
on the edge of Walden Pond, near Concord, Massachusetts, where
he lived until September 1847. WALDEN is Thoreaus
autobiograophical account of his Robinson Crusoe existence,
bare of creature comforts but rich in contemplation of the
wonders of nature and the ways of man. ON THE DUTY OF CIVIL
DISOBEDIENCE is the classic protest against government's
interference with individual liberty, and is considered one of
the most famous essays ever written. This newly repackaged
edition also includes a selection of Thoreau's poetry.

About the Author

Massachusetts native Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was a leading member of the American Transcendentalist movement, whose faith in nature was tested while Thoreau lived in a homemade hut at Walden Pond between 1845 and 1847. While there, Thoreau worked on the two books published in his lifetime: Walden and A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. The Maine Woods, Cape Cod, Excursions, and other works were published posthumously.
