"A slight sound at evening lifts me up by the ears, and makes life seem inexpressibly grand."

Henry David Thoreau's masterpiece, Walden, has touched generations with its quiet, gentle recollections. Now, younger readers are introduced to one of America's greatest writers through excerpts from Walden. Fusing the beauty, power, and subtlety of nature into eloquent prose, Henry David's House presents Thoreau's thoughts in a striking picture book to be appreciated by all readers. Peter Fiore's exquisite oil and watercolor paintings blend the dreaminess of a solitary life and the force of nature. Rich, true colors transport readers to the tiny house in the woods on the shores of Walden Pond.
