Thoreau's timeless reflections on his two-year sojourn of self-reliance continues to inspire readers. This book features highlighted passages to ponder, an introduction that examines the text from a contemporary perspective and reflective writing exercises. This pocket-size edition can be taken and enjoyed anywhere. It features an innovative and beautiful new take on a beloved classic. Though it had only a modest 2,000-copy first printing in 1854 (which took five years to sell out), "Walden"; or, "Life in the Woods" is now one of the world's most widely read books, having sold millions of copies. Thoreau's timeless reflections on his two-year sojourn of self-reliance by Walden Pond still inspire us to search for deeper meaning, greater harmony and more serenity in today's fast-paced world. This pocket-size edition draws us even more profoundly into Thoreau's musings: it features highlighted passages to ponder, an introduction that examines the text from a contemporary perspective and reflective writing exercises (with lined pages to write on). These special extras, with Thoreau's provocative words, provide further motivation for cultivating happiness and making positive life changes.
