In 1845, American thinker Henry Thoreau subjected himself to a social experiment and spent over two years of his life in the forest surrounding Walden Pond in Massachusetts. During this seclusion, away from civilisation and progress, Thoreau created a manifesto of simplicity, self-sufficiency, personal development and praise of nature – Walden: or, Life in the Woods.
