Book Title: A Sand County Almanac

Author: Aldo Leopold

Book Description:

Leopold's book chronicles a year in the life of a worn out farm that he lovingly restores to ecological health. His elegant description of wildlife on the farm and his description of human impacts have been rightly described as the beginnings of the science of ecology. The beauty of the writing and the rigor of the analysis has inspired me and continues to nourish me.
