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.
