Here he lived alone and independently for about two years, but not isolated. In his work Walden . Or Life in the Woods - he described his simple lifeat the lake and its nature and also integrated topics such as economy and society. The "Walden" experiment made it clear to Thoreau that six weeks of wage labor a year is enough to make a living.
