Linda Jones narrates this classic memoir with compassion and authenticity. Some of its quirky observations haven't worn well with the passage of time and may turn off some contemporary listeners. But Jones adds emphasis and a playful tone to Thoreau's list of budget items and explanation that he is a squatter on his friend Ralph Waldo Emerson's farm. First published in 1854, the book details Thoreau's life for two years, two months, and two days in a second-growth forest around the shores of Walden Pond in Massachusetts. Jones deliberately paces her delivery with warmth and treats the work like the masterpiece it is. In the chapter titled "Civil Disobedience" Jones and Thoreau shine brightest.
