From the Publisher
With their call for "simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!", for
self-honesty, and for harmony with nature, the writings of Henry
David Thoreau are perhaps the most influential philosophical works
in all American literature.
The selections in this volume represent Thoreau at his best.
Included in their entirety are Walden, his indisputable
masterpiece, and his two great arguments for nonconformity,
Civil Disobedience and Life Without Principle. A
lifetime of brilliant observation of nature--and of himself--is
recorded in selections from A Week On The Concord And Merrimack
Rivers, Cape Cod, The Maine Woods and The Journal.
