This special edition of the highly acclaimed A Sand County Almanac commemorates the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Aldo Leopold, one of the foremost conservationists of our century. First published in 1949, it combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with anoutspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land. It is a unique book, a classic work of conservation, the forefunner of such important books as Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Edward Abbey's Desert Solitaire, and Robert Finch's The Primal Place.

"Wilderness it he raw material out of which man has hammered the artifact called civilization."
The most famous book by the Iowan born naturalist, writer, and teacher Aldo Leopold. Although not as well known as Thoreau, Edward Abbey, and Annie Dillard, he belongs in their company and like them he can be lyrical and observant with a fierce belief in the importance of the environment. This is the centenary edition published by Oxford University Press.

The description of this book does not do justice to this significant text of environmental philosophy. Aldo Leopold is considered to be the founder of "deep ecology" and his work is considered to be course material at the university level. This is not just another pretty book about nature!
