By Henry David Thoreau, Louisa M. Alcott (Introduction by), Ralph Waldo Emerson (Introduction by)


Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an American naturalist, poet, philosopher, and essayist who played a leading role in the transcendentalist movement. A prolific writer, he produced more than 20 volumes of articles, essays, journals, poetry and books, with his most notable contributions including his work on philosophy and natural history. Arguably his most famous work, "Walden or, Life in the Woods" (1854), it concerns Thoreau's experiences over a period of two years, two months, and two days spent in a cabin near Conrad, Massachusetts. A reflection on simple living in nature, it is partly an exploration of personal freedom, partly a social experiment, and partly a voyage of self-discovery. Highly recommended for fans of nature writing and transcendentalism. Contents include: "Economy", "Where I Lived, and What I Lived for", "Reading", "Sounds", "Solitude", "Visitors", "The Bean-Field", "The Village", "The Ponds", "Baker Farm", "Higher Laws", "Brute Neighbors", "House-Warming", "Former Inhabitants and Winter Visitors", etc. Other works by this author include: "The Landlord" (1843), "Sir Walter Raleigh" (1844), and "Herald of Freedom" (1844). A Thousand Fields is republishing this classic book now complete with an Introductory poem by Louisa M. Alcott and a biographical sketch by Ralph Waldo Emerson.
