Walden, or, Life in the Woods is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and (to some degree) a manual for self-reliance. Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. Thoreau used this time to write his first book, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. The experience later inspired Walden, in which Thoreau compresses the time into a single calendar year, and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development

“When I wrote the following pages, or rather the bulk of them, I lived alone, in the woods, a mile from any neighbor, in a house which I had built myself, on the shore of Walden Pond, in Concord, Massachusetts, and earned my living by the labor of my hands only. I lived there two years and two months. At present I am a sojourner in civilized life again. I should not obtrude my affairs so much on the notice of my readers if very particular inquiries had not been made by my townsmen concerning my mode of life, which some would call impertinent, though they do not appear to me at all impertinent, but, considering the circumstances, very natural and pertinent. Some have asked what I got to eat; if I did not feel lonesome; if I was not afraid; and the like. Others have been curious to learn what portion of my income I devoted to charitable purposes; and some, who have large families, how many poor children I maintained. I will therefore ask those of my readers who feel no particular interest in me to pardon me if I undertake to answer some of these questions in this book.” “Walden, or Life in the Woods” by Henry David Thoreau is a reflection on simple living in natural surroundings. Thoreau describes his experiences over the course of two years in a cabin he built near Walden Pond in Massachusetts. “Walden” is one of the most celebrated works of American literature.

Illustrated with book-end doodles about reading Nature was a form of religion for naturalist, essayist, and early environmentalist Henry David Thoreau (1817-62). In communing with the natural world, he wished to "live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and ... learn what it had to teach." Toward that end Thoreau built a cabin in the spring of 1845 on the shores of Walden Pond -- on land owned by Ralph Waldo Emerson -- outside Concord, Massachusetts. There he observed nature, farmed, built fences, surveyed, and wrote in his journal.One product of his two-year sojourn was this book -- a great classic of American letters. Interwoven with accounts of Thoreau's daily life are mediations on human existence, society, government, and other topics, expressed with wisdom and beauty of style.Walden offers abundant evidence of Thoreau's ability to begin with observations on a mundane incident or the minutiae of nature and then develop these observations into profound ruminations on the most fundamental human concerns. Credited with influencing Tolstoy, Gandhi, and other thinkers, the volume remains a masterpiece of philosophical reflection.

My Quest for Peace  WALDEN Or Life in the Woods

NOW ALSO IN PAPERBACK! An emotional memoir revealing the work of young peace activists in the Middle East Jonathan Kis-Lev was five years old when he first heard the sirens. Running into the shelter, fearing the missiles of the Gulf War coming from Iraq, he realized for the first time he might not survive. This was the first time he understood "who Arabs were." From there to becoming one of Israel's most prominent peace activists−learning Arabic and having Muslim friends across the Middle East−was, in Jonathan's words, "quite a journey." Jonathan Kis-Lev won a Presidential recognition for his peacemaking from the late Israeli President Shimon Peres. Jonathan's voice, coming from a new generation of Israeli and Palestinian peacemakers, brings hope for those wishing for peace in the Holy Land. Jonathan brings a genuine and authentic voice, representing a new generation of peacemakers in the Middle East. Marked by honesty and compassion for Palestinians and Israelis alike, My Quest for Peace illuminates both sides' experience through the story of one young man's struggle for peace. Advance praise for My Quest for Peace: "This book will sweep you up in its narrative force and not let go of you until it is done. Kis-Lev's accomplishment is so unique, and the stories he brings are so moving, that it makes you believe anything is possible, even, God help us, peace in the Middle East." −Ashton Jake "Captivating. . . Kis-Lev gives the terrible conflict a human face. The author makes a great effort to empathize with all sides and tells an affecting and important story that succeeds as both literature and social commentary." −John Vista, Middle East Review "As a Palestinian, it was a fascinating read for me peeling back how to feel beneath another person's skin, across a vast chasm, a chasm I was born into. I felt choked up several times. Jonathan masterfully illustrated the agony of both sides. This book opened my heart and soul." −Laila Hoja, The Book Reviewer BOOK EXCERPT All rights reserved, Goldsmith Press. Reprinted by permission: CHAPTER ONE "I hate Arabs!" I thought to myself. Of course. Who wouldn't? Because of these "Arabs" I am crammed here, into this small room, forced to wear this stinky rubber-smelling scary black gas mask. My older sister, who is like a mother to me, seems anxious and terrified. Even my older brother seems distressed. My two young sisters are crying. My mother is trying to console my baby sister, but to no avail. My father is nervously playing with the radio, wanting to hear where the missiles are landing. I am five years old."
