Walden, written during a 2-year forest retreat in the author's own cabin, is one of the most notable examples of naturalism and transcendentalism in literature. Thoreau's quest to "live deliberately…in the essential facts of life" laid much of the groundwork for modern conservation efforts. Even today, his words and wisdom inspire readers worldwide to reconnect with the natural world, away from machines and industry.
This edition also includes On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, Thoreau's moral argument for non-violent resistance of unjust law. Since its publication, Civil Disobedience has become a tome for self-governance and self-reliance.
