Walden Henry David THOREAU (1817 - 1862) Walden by Henry David Thoreau is one of the best-known non-fiction books written by an American. Published in 1854, it details Thoreau’s life for two years, two months, and two days around the shores of Walden Pond. Walden is neither a novel nor a true autobiography, but a social critique of the Western World, with each chapter heralding some aspect of humanity that needed to be either renounced or praised. Along with his critique of the civilized world, Thoreau examines other issues afflicting man in society, ranging from economy and reading to solitude and higher laws. He also takes time to talk about the experience at Walden Pond itself, commenting on the animals and the way people treated him for living there, using those experiences to bring out his philosophical positions. This extended commentary on nature has often been interpreted as a strong statement to the natural religion that transcendentalists like Thoreau and Emerson were preaching.

"Katie Lee’s "All My Rivers Are Gone" is a unique book. It is a journal filled with strong emotions about a wondrous place on the American landscape. Her entries tell the sad saga of the decision to flood Glen Canyon on the Colorado River. Her words and songs make the canyon come alive and they provide a vivid picture of what has been lost. "Katie Lee uses eloquent and forceful words to present a compelling case for restoring Glen Canyon. Her steadfast efforts to educate a new generation of activists about the beauty of this mystical place is important to us all. "All My Rivers Are Gone" is an exciting trip to a magical place. It is a must for all those who care about rivers and our environment." —Dan Beard, former Commissioner, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (1993-95)
