A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold Summary

Few books have had a greater impact than A Sand County Almanac, which many credit with launching a revolution in land management. Written as a series of sketches based principally upon the flora and fauna in a rural part of Wisconsin, the book, originally published by Oxford in 1949, 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; a final section addresses the philosophical issues involved in wildlife conservation. Beloved for its description and evocation of the natural world, Leopold's book, which has sold well over 2 million copies, remains a foundational text in environmental science and a national treasure.

The Land Pyramid as Philosophy and Structure in Aldo Leopold's "Sand County Almanac" by Susanne Hefekäuser Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Department of English and Linguistics), course: Nature Writing, language: English, abstract: The essays which compose Aldo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac and Sketches Here and There have been written in a time span of over thirty years, some dating back to the 1910’s. Therefore, the work could rather be seen as a collection of essays than a monographic book. Additionally, Leopold writes about such a diversity of places and species, that the work as a whole seems to be very fragmented. However, this style of composition is not as randomized as it seems at first glance. Instead, as a whole, the essays of A Sand County Almanac form the structure of an ecosystem with interdependent parts supporting and challenging each other. In this paper, I will first explore Leopold’s own definition of an ecosystem as he describes it in the subchapter “The Land Pyramid”. Then, I will demonstrate that A Sand County Almanac mirrors the complex structures of such a system.

Justice and the Earth by Eric T. Freyfogle Summary

An eloquent case against accepted notions of private property and free markets is at the heart of this finely argued plea for basic changes in the ways humans view the Earth. Justice and the Earth urges people to envision an integrated tapestry of natural systems for which they are responsible, rather than an economic resource they own.

Aldo Leopold: A Sand County Almanac & Other Writings on Conservation and Ecology by Aldo Leopold Summary

Since his death in 1948, Aldo Leopold has been increasingly recognized as one of the indispensable figures of American environmentalism. A pioneering forester, sportsman, wildlife manager, and ecologist, he was also a gifted writer whose farsighted land ethic is proving increasingly relevant in our own time. Now, Leopold’s essential contributions to our literature––some hard-to-find or previously unpublished––are gathered in a single volume for the first time. Here is his classic A Sand County Almanac, hailed––with Thoreau’s Walden and Carson’s Silent Spring––as one of the main literary influences on the modern environmental movement. Published in 1949, it is still astonishing today: a vivid, firsthand, philosophical tour de force. Along with Sand County are more than fifty articles, essays, and lectures exploring the new complexities of ecological science and what we would now call environmental ethics. Leopold’s sharp-eyed, often humorous journals are illustrated here for the first time with his original photographs, drawings, and maps. Also unique to this collection is a selection of over 100 letters, most of them never before published, tracing his personal and professional evolution and his efforts to foster in others the love and sense of responsibility he felt for the land.

Revisiting Aldo Leopold's Land Ethic: Emerging Cultures of Sustainability by William Forbes Summary

Revisiting Aldo Leopold's Land Ethic: Emerging Cultures of Sustainability is a collection of essays about the man acknowleged by some as the father of wildlife conservation.What may be a surprise to some is that Leopold was one of the early leaders of the American wilderness movement. Throughout his life he played many roles: wildlife manager, hunter, husband, father, naturalist, wilderness advocate, poet, scientist, philosopher, and visionary. He is best known as author of A Sand County Almanac, and Sketches Here and There. Beyond his descriptions of the natural world, in this writing Leopold articulated an innovative idea known as the "land ethic," a new way of thinking and acting toward the land.

L'Ethique de la terre by Aldo Leopold Summary

L’homme moderne peut-il encore préserver la nature ? Conserver son caractère sauvage (wilderness) sans en être exclu ? Quelle place peut-il y occuper ? Pour Aldo Leopold, pionnier de la pensée écologique, à l’instar de H.D. Thoreau ou John Muir, et père de la protection de la nature, la réponse se trouve dans la quête d’un équilibre harmonieux entre la nature et l’homme moderne. Il se distingue ainsi des courants, inspirés par Thoreau, qui évacuent l’homme et prônent une communion avec la nature. Aldo Leopold (1887-1948) est l’un des pionniers, avec H.D. Thoreau et John Muir, de la pensée écologique et le père de la protection de la nature et des espèces sauvages. L'éthique de la terre (Land Ethic) est une référence incontestée de l'écologie.

A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold Summary

Aldo Leopold's A Sand County Almanac has enthralled generations of nature lovers and conservationists and is indeed revered by everyone seriously interested in protecting the natural world. Hailed for prose that is "full of beauty and vigor and bite" (The New York Times), it is perhaps the finest example of nature writing since Thoreau's Walden. Now this classic work is available in a completely redesigned and lavishly illustrated gift edition, featuring over one hundred beautiful full-color pictures by Michael Sewell, one of the country's leading nature photographers. Sewell, whose work has graced the pages of Audubon and Sierra magazines, walked Leopold's property in Wisconsin and shot these photographs specifically for this edition, allowing readers to see Sand County as Leopold saw it. The resulting layout is spectacular. But the heart of the book remains Leopold's carefully rendered observations of nature. Here we follow Leopold throughout the year, from January to December, as he walks about the rural Wisconsin landscape, watching a woodcock dance skyward in golden afternoon light, or spying a rough-legged hawk dropping like a feathered bomb on its prey. And perhaps most important are Leopold's trenchant comments throughout the book on our abuse of the land and on what we must do to preserve this invaluable treasure. This edition also includes two of Leopold's most eloquent essays on conservation, "The Land Ethic" and "Marshland Elegy." With this gift edition of A Sand County Almanac, a new generation of readers can walk beside one of America's most respected naturalists as he conveys the beauty of a marsh before sunrise or the wealth of history to be found in an ancient oak.
