About the Author: Henry David Thoreau

Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Walden book, this is one of the most wanted Henry David Thoreau author readers around the world.


Walden I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived Inspiring, brilliantly written, cantankerous and funny Walden is both a very specific story about one man s attempt to live the simple life in the wilderness, and the great, founding text both for the environmental movement and the entire counter culture.This is a new series of twenty distinctive, unforgettable Penguin Classics in a beautiful new design and pocket sized format, with coloured jackets echoing Penguin s original covers.

    I ve read Walden many times now since that first time in high school I will always love this book, and it reveals itself anew with each reading When I first encountered Thoreau in high school, his words rang in my soul like a prophet s manifesto I admired what seemed to be his unique courage and absolute integrity He inspired me to want to live deliberately, but I knew that a solitary life in a cabin was beyond my abilities His will seemed so muchresolute than anything I could ever I ve read Walden many times now since that first time in high school I will always love this book, and it reveals itself anew with each reading When I first encountered Thoreau in high scho...

    I love Thoreau s ideals Taking care of nature is of paramount importance, especially these days as technology flings us farther and faster into the future than we ve ever gone before I also love Walden because I grew up near the pond and would pass it on my way into Boston back in the days when I was a young English major in college Back then I looked upon this book and its ethos as a rallying banner for people who gave a shit about Mother Earth.Given a bit of reflection after arecent r I love Thoreau s ideals Taking care of nature is of paramount importance, especially these days as technology flings us farther and faster into the future than we ve ever gone before I also love Walden because I grew up near the pond and would pass it on my way into Boston back in the days when I was a young English major in college Back then I looked upon this book and its ethos as a rallying banner for people who gave a shit about Mother Earth.Given a bit of reflection after arecent reread, I feel like there s a hitch in Thoreau s practical theory I mean, he went out there and su...
