A Sand County Almanac: Aldo Leopold is one of the most distinguished environmentalists and conservationists of our time and a great promoter of a “land ethic”. He was born in Iowa where he spent much of his childhood growing up while later in life settling on a farm in Sauk County, in the sand county area of central Wisconsin. He published “A Sand County Almanac” in 1949. It is a series of stories and essays on natural history, conservation and land ethics that paint a picture of the beauty and complexity of the biological world. It should be on every conservationist’s and environmentalist’s bookshelf.
