the Field Kitchen

On the Fourth of July 1845, eight years after his graduation from Harvard, the writer, philosopher, naturalist Henry David Thoreau left the town of Concord, Massachusetts, to go and live in a log cabin, built by himself on the wild banks of Lake Walden. There he lived for two years, two months and two days.

A copy of his journal, Walden, or Life in the woods (Boston, 1854), will be given free with every Homewood Field Kitchen.
