Description

Walden is a book about Henry David Thoreau’s experiment with self-reliance. He lived in a cabin near Walden Pond in Massachusetts amidst woods that were owned by fellow Transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson. Thoreau focused on simple living and personal introspection during the two-year stay. Walden chronicles his experience.

From Publishers Weekly

31 October 1990 – Shrinking Walden into picture book size is somewhat like trying to fit Moby Dick into an aquarium. Still, Lowe's selections from Thoreau's iconoclastic work will give children a brief taste of this classic. Using only quotations from the original work, Lowe tells the story of Thoreau's year in the woods, emphasizing his descriptions of nature,stet comma and action rather than his philosophical musings. Readers see the young Thoreau putting shingles on his roof, hoeing beans, welcoming a stranger; they can revel in the natural wonders he describes--the ``whip-poor-wills,'' in summer, the drifting snow in winter, the ice breaking in the pond in spring. Sabuda's superb linoleum-cut prints lend a hard-edged brilliance to the dark woods--where sunlight is filtered through etched leaves, and moonlight shimmers on the waters of the pond made famous by a young man's experiment with life. All ages.
