In 1845 Henry David Thoreau, one of the principal New England Transcendentalists, left the small town of Concord for the country. Beside the lake of Walden he built himself a log cabin and returned to nature, to observe and reflect. From this experience emerged Walden, one of the great classics of American literature. Here also is 'Civil Disobedience', Thoreau's essay on just resistance to government.
