    Thoreau's classic account of the solitary life, describing his attempts to simplify his life and sort out his priorities by living alone in a cabin beside Walden Pond for nearly two years, is one of the most influential books ever written. The bible of the environmental movement, Walden vividly portrays Thoreau's reverence for nature, and his understanding of the idea that nature is made up of crucially interrelated parts.

    Darwin8u says: "SHAKES the Ground, Sun & the Wilderness within."
    "A great "listen""

    Story

    I listened to this audio version of Walden in the car on a long trip. It was easy to accept the reader's interpretation of the phrasing--his voice is distinctive and wonderfully appropriate to the story and its time. I felt like I was being told tales whilst (definitely "whilst") warmed by a cozy fire in an old stone fireplace in a log cabin. I will not comment on the book itself - who would dare!
