While living for several years at Walden pond, Thoreau chronicled his experiences. He writes about what it means to be independent, human, and at one with nature while not being dragged down by the usual technologies and overbearing jobs. Thoreau lived to the beat of a different drum.

This work describes Henry David Thoreau's experiment in living in the relative wilds by Walden Pond from 1845 to 1847. It is an examination of the ecology of his time, and is by turns a source of philosophical speculation, social protest, personal anecdote and the study of nature.From the Publisher:
Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
