Love Walden, but what you need to understand about it is that his mother basically took care of him the whole time he was doing that and the land he built his cabin on was more or less gifted to him. While his prose is undeniably beautiful, It was NOT as "independent" as he wanted you to think!

Sonuvagun. He made himself look so badass and independent. Still, great book on simplicity and independence. It's like a 19th century self help, kind of.
