About this book

The book offers a series of forty short pieces, arranged in seasonal "almanac" form, along with longer essays, arranged chronologically, which show the development of Leopold's approach to managing private lands for conservation ends. The writings are vintage Leopold - clear, sensible and provocative, sometimes humorous, often lyrical, and always inspiring.

Part 2 A landowner's conservation almanac; winter; spring; summer; fall. Part 3 The outlook: the farmer as a conservationist; history of the Riley Game Co-operative, 1931-39; planning for wildlife; what is a weed?; the outlook for farm wildlife; the land-health concept and conservation.
