Just as Henry David Thoreau was not the hermit in the woods he is sometimes made out to be, nor does the first-time reader need navigate Thoreau’s Walden alone. Dan Payne’s accessible, delightful companion to Thoreau’s classic puts Thoreau’s work in a cultural, historical, literary, and philosophical context. Sometimes personal, always informative, and often profound, Why Read Thoreau’s WALDEN? is the perfect guide for the 21st century student of Thoreau. - Jill Sisson Quinn, author of Deranged: Finding a Sense of Place in the Landscape and in the Lifespan, contributor to OnEarth, Orion, Ecotone and many other magazines
With passionate concision and eloquence, Daniel Payne urges us to heed Thoreau's call to awaken to our lives and to the world's sublime grandeur, and reminds us why the wisdom found in the pages of Walden is more timely than ever. - Tim Folger, Contributing Editor to Discover andOnEarth magazines, contributor to National Georgraphic, Series Editor of The Best American Science and Nature Writing
