While there is probably some site that has a summary of the work Walden by Henry David Thoreau, if you will read the chapter summaries of each chapter which are provided here at enotes and take notes on the main points of these chapters, you can easily compose your own summary so you will not plagiarize.  Many times, too, summaries will point to significant details from certain chapters.  So, if you will read yourself one of these chapters [the text is available here on enotes--click on the tag to the right of your question], you can enliven and add specificity to your summary that will make it more worthy and individualistic.

In addition, you may wish to connect to some of the tags that are listed beside your question such as transcendentalism, the movement of thought which propelled Thoreau's venture into the woods and all his reflections upon Nature, themes, and Walden Essays and Criticisms.
