In 1845, Henry David Thoreau moved into his cabin at Walden Pond to conduct his living experiment on how to simplify one's life. What came out of it was one of the most influential books of the 19th century. This edition of Henry David Thoreau's 1854 classic, Walden, is accompanied by an essay written by Virginia Woolf in 1917. The essay, published in the Times Literary Supplement in London on the 100th anniversary of Thoreau's birth, is an insightful, thoughtful and intelligent tribute to Thoreau and his work. Whether you are a fan of Thoreau, Woolf or both, you will thoroughly enjoy and treasure this special edition of Walden.
