Free Shipping!


Henry David Thoreau's vision of personal freedom is indelibly etched on the American consciousness. 'We need the tonic of wildness,' Thoreau wrote in Walden, and by turning his back on town amenities to build a house on Walden Pond in 1845, he helped shape our notions of the individual, subsistence, and a moral relation to nature.  

 Walden and other Writings of Henry David Thoreau is an excellent addition to your vintage classic literature collection or home library.


Walden and other Writings of Henry David Thoreau is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. The previous owner has underlined passages and made notes in the margin in pink-colored pencil up until page 297, as shown in photos. All pages are legible.
