A Sand County Almanac : "There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot. These essays are the delights and dilemmas of one who cannot." So begins A Sand County Almanac, Aldo Leopold's simple expression of feeling for the natural world he experienced on weekends at his farm along the Wisconsin River. Told with metaphor and poetic allusion, a strong theme of environmental loss runs through the essays. Leopold is saddened - but never embittered - by public policy and individual choices that cavalierly sacrifice the natural world for human progress. Blending the poet's soul with the prophet's vision, A Sand County Almanac's gentle clarion call to preserve natural habitat is as profound and timely today as when it first appeared over 50 years ago. A must-listen for all nature lovers. Abridged on 3 compact discs. Read by Stewart L. Udall.
