The inspiring and unique story of Walden by Henry David Thoreau reveals his experiences of living very simply in a cabin on the shores of Walden Pond, primarily to concentrate on his writing. By immersing himself in the calm simplicity of nature, Thoreau wanted to go on a spiritual journey and find independence and a greater sense of self. Thoreau has said: 'I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.'
