Thoreau, Henry David. Walden.
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." This is one of the most quoted passages from perhaps America's most famous nonfiction book. Thoreau's detailed account of living in a small cabin on Walden Pond skewers conventional thinking. Embracing solitude to observe nature still sounds appealing over 150 years later. The final disk includes a searchable PDF file of the complete text of the book. Foster's expressive reading in his clear and strong voice lends authority and authenticity to Thoreau's words. Shirley Fetherolf, Library Media Specialist, Little Rock, Arkansas
