Walden & Other Writings ,

Henry David Thoreau was born in 1817 in America and went on to become one of the greatest philosophers of the world. He graduated from Harvard and studied, Greek, Latin and English. For a while, he taught at school, but eventually, turned to writing and lecturing.
In 1845, he set out from the faily home in Massachusetts to come and live alone in the woods. He built a wooden cabin by himself, on the shoreline at Walden, owned by the famous Ralph Waldo Emerson. In the first year of his solitary living he was arrested for refusing to pay taxes. This prompted him to write his famous essay on civil disobedience.
“WALDEN : ON LIFE IN THE WOODS” was the result of his experiment in simple living — leading life in nature.
In his own words Thoreau said, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived” – Walden, published 150 years ago, “remains the ultimate self-help book.”’
