An innovative and beautiful new take on a beloved classic.

Walden; or, Life in the Woods is one of the world's most widely read books, having sold millions upon millions of copies. Thoreau's timeless reflections on his two-year sojourn of self-reliance by Walden Pond still inspire us to search for deeper meaning, greater harmony, and more serenity in today's fast-paced world.

This pocket-size edition draws us even more profoundly into Thoreau's musings: it features highlighted passages to ponder, an introduction that examines the text from a contemporary perspective, and reflective writing exercises (with lined pages to write on). These special extras, with Thoreau's provocative words, provide further motivation for cultivating happiness and making positive life changes.
