Walden - Books About
Henry Waldo Thoreau wrote "Walden" between 1845 and 1854. As Thoreau writes, "When I wrote the following pages, or rather the bulk of them, I lived alone, in the woods, a mile from any neighbor, in a house which I had built myself, on the shore of Walden Pond, in Concord, Massachusetts, and earned my living by the labor of my hands only. I lived there two years and two months."
