In March, 1845, Henry David Thoreau built himself a wooden hut on the edge of Walden Pond, near Concord, Massachusetts, where he lived until September 1847.
Walden, Thoreau's autobiographical account of what happened there, is also his written meditation on the wonders of nature and the ways of man. Civil Disobedience is the classic protest against government's interference with individual liberty, and is considered one of the most famous essays ever written.
