Reviews
"Walden--republished by Beacon Press this year with an inspired introduction by Bill McKibben about Thoreau's relevance to our own spiritually impoverished reality--is arguably the most important work of literary nonfiction in the American canon."
--The New York Review of Books

"Bill McKibben gives us Thoreau's Walden as the gospel of the present moment."
--Robert D. Richardson Jr., author of Henry Thoreau: A Life of the Mind

"A stunning new edition [with an] illuminating introduction...McKibben's voice melds with, but never overtakes, that of Thoreau."
--The Oregonian

"McKibben provides the most Thoreauvian introduction to Thoreau's classic that I have ever seen."
--Lawrence Buell, author of Emerson and Writing for an Endangered World
