2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reflections at Walden includes Thoreau?s account of how he lived and what he learned during his two years at Walden.

Later he says,?There can be no very black melancholy to him who lives in the midst of nature." These principles governed Thoreau's life. And in all the writings included here -- selections from "Walden, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers, The Journal, Ktaand and the Maine Woods, and the early poems"--Thoreau speaks of nature with the simple eloquence of a man who is motivated to speech by love
