Walden is one of the best-known non-fiction books ever written by an American. It details Thoreau's sojourn in a cabin near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson. Walden was written with expressed seasonal divisions. Thoreau hoped to isolate himself from society in order to gain a more objective understanding of it. Simplicity and self-reliance were Thoreau's other goals, and the whole project was inspired by Transcendentalist philosophy. This book is full of fascinating musings and reflections. As pertinent and relevant today as it was when it was first written.

Oft-quoted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau is perhaps best known for his book Walden. First published in 1854, Walden documents the time Thoreau spent living in a hand-built cabin in the woods near Walden Pond in Massachusetts. A minor work in its own time, Walden gained popularity during the counterculture movement of the 1960s.A Novel Journal: Walden breathes new life into the classic book that encourages everyone to get back to nature. With the entirety of Walden in tiny type serving as the journal’s lines, readers and writers can delight in having their own words juxtaposed against those of Thoreau. Whether embarking on new literary feats or simply rehashing the day’s events, writers will be inspired and motivated by the words right at their fingertips.Packaged with a Svepa cover, brilliant endpapers, colored edges, and matching elastic band to close pages tight, this book is a great gift or collectible for admirers of Thoreau’s work. And the compact size makes this journal easy to slip into a purse, briefcase, or backpack so you can record and revisit your thoughts on the go.
