Early C20th American culture and dissent

A Sand County Almanac and Sketches Here and There
Aldo Leopold

£9.99

“There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot,” begins Aldo Leopold’s totemic work of ecological thought. Ranging from lyrical observations of the changing seasons over a year on his Wisconsin farm to his hugely influential idea of a ‘land ethic’ signifying moral equilibrium between humans and all other life on earth, A Sand County Almanac changed perceptions of the natural world and helped give birth to the modern conservation movement.

“One of the most influential books about the natural world ever published.” – Paul Kingsnorth
