Description

This beautiful illustrated gift edition of the great American classic celebrates its 150th anniversary. In July 1845, Henry David Thoreau built a small cottage in the woods near Walden Pond, Massachusetts. During the two years spent there, he began to write Walden, his most important work, a chronicle of his communion with nature that became one of the most influential and compelling books in Western literature.
