Author Bio

In March 1845, Henry David Thoreau built himself a wooden hut on the edge of Walden Pond, near Concord, MA, where he lived until September 1847. Walden is Thoreau's autobiographical account of his Robinson Crusoe existence, bare of creature comforts but rich in contemplation of the wonders of nature and the ways of man.
