Walden, a game

Walden, Henry David Thoreau’s classic meditation on self-reliance and nature, continues to offer students a valuable perspective nearly two centuries after its first publication in 1854. Now students can also experience the world of Walden Pond through a role-playing game funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
