Walden for the 21st century


Rewriting Henry David Thoreau's landmark 1854 classic with modernized vocabulary.


Here's a guy who wants to make Walden more accessible to all of us 21st century folks. "While widely quoted, Walden is rarely read anymore, and our society's familiarity with the story is fading...By creating an updated version of Walden, I want to create more opportunities for other people's lives to be enriched by this book."

Just be sure you read it outside, with your back up agains the trunk of a tree. Preferably by a pond.
