What was the main idea of the book?

          People are too caught up in "making a living" and forget to truly live. They dedicate their lives to consumerism and "producing a good harvest", but leave the 'human harvest' to wither and rot.This idea is pushed in a variety of ways throughout Walden, intertwining other morals and lessons in its wake motivating Thoreau to continue on with his experiment.
