This is the authoritative edition of an American literaru classic: Henry David Thoreau's Walden, an elegantly written record of his experiment in simple living. With this edition, Thoreau scholar Jeffrey S. Cramer has meticulously corrected errors and omissions from previous editions of Walden and here provides illuminating notes on the biographical, historical, and geographical contexts of the great nineteenth-century writer and thinker's life.
Cramer's newly edited text is based on the original 1854 edition of Walden, with emendations taken from Thoreau's draft manuscripts, his own markings on the page proofs, and notes in his personal copy of the book. In the editor's notes to the volume, Cramer quotes from sources Thoreau actually read, showing how he used, interpreted, and altered these sources. Cramer also glosses Walden with references to Thoreau's essays, journals, and correspondence. With the wealth of material in this edition, readers will find an unprecedented opportunity to immerse themselves in the unique and fascinating world of Thoreau.
Anyone who has read and loved Walden will want to own and treasure this gift edition. Those wishing to read Walden for the first time will not find a better guide than Jeffrey S. Cramer.

From our 2015 #80DayRead Summer Reading Club traveler Dave: It's political but also transports you into nature. It allows you to participate in living off the grid in a time when we are always plugged in. Living in BC, many of us live in a location minutes away from our own "Walden Pond", but we never take the time to enjoy it. This book helps us remember.

Started it in the winter and finished in the summer, so I am counting it.

Incredible annotations. Makes it twice as long, but really adds a richer understanding and dimension to the text. It's also nice that the annotations are on the same page, so you don't have to flip to the back of the book if you want to read them.
