Product Details

Praise

Walden—republished by Beacon Press this year with an inspired introduction by Bill McKibben about Thoreau’s relevance to our own spiritually impoverished reality—is arguably the most important work of literary nonfiction in the American canon.”
The New York Review of Books

“Bill McKibben gives us Thoreau’s Walden as the gospel of the present moment.”
—Robert D. Richardson Jr., author of Henry Thoreau: A Life of the Mind

“A stunning new edition [with an] illuminating introduction…McKibben’s voice melds with, but never overtakes, that of Thoreau.”
The Oregonian

“McKibben provides the most Thoreauvian introduction to Thoreau’s classic that I have ever seen.”
—Lawrence Buell, author of Emerson and Writing for an Endangered World
