"Walden" chronicles Henry David Thoreau's slightly over two year stay on land owned by his friend Ralph Waldo Emerson near Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. Living alone in a house he built himself, Thoreau examines "civilized life" from the perspective provided by solitude in the woods.
Thoreau's observations continue to resonate today as people examine their role in nature and the pressures and attractions of society and consumerism.
