In 1845 Henry David Thoreau, one of the principal New England Transcendentalists, left the small town of Concord for the country. Beside the lake of Walden he built himself a log cabin and returned to nature, to observe and reflect – while surviving on eight dollars a year. From this experience emerged Walden, one of the great classics of American literature.
The simple way of living that is lost in today's rush rush world. Stopping to take a look at your surroundings. Wakes our inner currious child long forgotten.
