     Walden is a work by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau. The text is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and to some degree a manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, Walden details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond amid woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts.

    For those given the privilege of being alive during the Gilded Age of America, the expansion of the American economy was truly astounding to watch. With Cornelius Vanderbilt controlling the monopoly on the waterways and Andrew Carnegie operating the steel monopoly, many wondered if there was another monopoly to be controlled in America. The answer to this came in the form of John D. Rockefeller, oil tycoon and the product of an upbringing that focused on hard work and treating everyone with fairness.
