First published in 1949 and praised in The New York Times Book Review as a trenchant book full of 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 Written with an unparalleled understanding of the ways of nature the book includes a section on the monthly changes of the Wisconsin countryside another part that gathers informal pieces written by Leopold over a forty year period as he traveled through the woodlands of Wisconsin Iowa Arizona Sonora Oregon Manitoba and elsewhere and a final section in which Leopold addresses the philosophical issues involved in wildlife conservation As the forerunner of 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 forty years ago
