    1st Edition - 1st printing.

    Based on the stories by David Thoreau. Adapted by John Porcellino.

    "I am convinced, both by faith and experience, that to maintain one's self on this Earth is not a hardship, but a pasttime, if we will live simply and wisely." So said Henry David Thoreau in 1845 when he began his famous experiment of living on Walden Pond. In this graphic masterpiece, John Porcellino uses only the visionary words of Thoreau himself to tell the story of those two years off the beaten track. The pared-down text focuses on Thoreau's most profound ideas, and Porcellino's fresh, simple pictures bring the philosopher's sojourn at Walden to cinematic life. This graphic treatment provides a vivid new interpretation of Thoreau's Walden and presents a contemporary look at Thoreau's call to slow down in an ever-accelerating world, a message that is as relevant today as it was 150 years ago.

    Hardcover, 104 pages, B&W.

    Cover price $16.99.
