A Sand County Almanac

A Sand County Almanac
Leopold, Aldo, 1886-1948

"First published in 1949 and praised in the New York Times Book Review as "full of beauty and vigor and bite," A Sand County almanac combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land. As the forerunner to such important books as Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Edward Abbey's Desert Solitaire, and Robert Finch's The Primal Place, this classic work remains as relevant today as it was nearly seventy years ago."--container.
