Henry David Thoreau was a 19th century American writer and lifelong advocate for the abolition of slavery. His written works are many and varied but he is perhaps best known for works such as Walden, a book which promotes the idea of simple living in natural surroundings and for Civil Disobedience, which argues that the general population should not simply sit idle while those elected to government ride roughshod over their wishes.
Of his other published work, Walking stands out as one which deals with the importance of nature to mankind, something which we are becoming increasingly aware of, and the reason that we cannot survive without it, either physically, mentally, or spiritually.
Now, you can own all three of these perceptive and illuminating works in Henry David Thoreau Bundle: Walden, On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, and Walking.
Each is a work that is well ahead of its day in terms of thought and each reflects much of what we still face in the world today.

Great books and naration, but....
Would it be so much effort for Audible to label the chapters correctly through the title of the books and chapters, rather than having to search through each manually? I had the same problem with others such as the Sherlock Holmes series narrated by Stephen Fry: with so many stories and chapters in it, it seems so silly to not have proper titles in place for them.
That said this is a great set of Thoreau to have and good narration.
