A cornerstone of American letters, Walden is Henry David Thoreau's chronicle of the two years he spent living by himself at Walden Pond, contemplating the individual's relationship to society. Thoreau first published this book in 1854, and its themes of self-reliance, independence, individuality, and integration with nature still resonate with readers today.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Andre Gregory re-creates the blinded Lusseyran's courage with engaging skill. Listeners experience Lusseyran's compelling faith in the ultimate goodness of life; there is no hint of sentimentality or facetiousness here. Likewise, the Levines recall how their lives were transformed by love and courage. After being given a poor prognosis for curing her cancer, Ondrea was healed through acupuncture and faith. In this radio interview, the Levines reveal their charming, unabashed intimacy. Woodman carefully details how the untapped feminine resources inside both women and men should be fully developed if we are to make a better world. Michael O'Keefe's reading of Walden has a very matter-of-fact purity to it. Listeners hear Thoreau's choice criticisms of his fellow citizens delivered with editorial-like resolution.--Joseph Keppler"
