About this book

This special edition of the highly acclaimed A Sand County Almanac commemorates the centenary of the birth of Aldo Leopold, one of the foremost conservationists of the twentieth century. First published in 1949, A Sand County Almanac combines some of the finest writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land. It is a unique and classic work of conservation, and is as relevant today as when it was written 40 years ago.

"One of the seminal works of the environmental movement."
The Boston Globe

"I have used this text for twenty years and will continue to use it [...] It should be required reading for every high school senior."
– Walter L. Cook, Jr., University of Georgia

"An inspirational classic – as relevant today as it was when first published in 1949."
– Paul S. Miko, University of New Mexico

"We can place this book on the shelf that holds the writings of Thoreau and John Muir."
The San Francisco Chronicle

"It is safe to assume that A Sand County Almanac will be read for decades, and probably centuries to come."
– William Vogt

"Any student of the natural resources and the environment is not yet educated if he or she has not read A Sand County Almanac."
– Paul T. Tueller, University of Nevada at Reno

"A classic book, good to have in a [relatively] inexpensive edition."
– Professor Marshall Spector, State University of New York
