Summary (From the publisher):

A masterpiece of American literature, Walden is Thoreau's account of a year spent in a shack beside a pond outside Concord, Massachusetts. Incidents in his daily life and intellectual activities are used as starting points for wide-ranging reflection written in a compelling prose style, seasoned with humor and shrewdness. Thoreau's famous essay on Civil Disobedience which influenced Ghandi and Tolstoy, states his case for nonconformity. Life Without Principle is Thoreau's unqualified statement of his defiant individualism.
