A Sand County Almanac




By Aldo Leopold
Shipping fee is included (within the contiguous US). A renowned ecologist, Aldo Leopold wrote his collection of essays for A Sand County Almanac over a 12 year period beginning in the late 1930's. Unfortunately, he never saw the impact his book would make as he suffered a heart attack while fighting a grass fire on a neighbor's farm just one week after the book was agreed to be published. The book's final edit was taken on by a group of Leopold's family, friends, and colleagues and in 1949 it went to print.

Educational and eloquent, A Sand County Almanac delivers a message that leaves readers longing for things natural and wild in a time when natural and wild things are disappearing all around us. Stories of his tract of land on the Wisconsin River, memoirs of his early years working for the U.S. Forest Service, and somber soliloquies on the state of the environment invite you to share in Leopold's "delights and dilemmas". Perhaps the crowning achievement of A Sand County Almanac is the introduction of a Land Ethic that addresses the relationship between people and the land and calls for moral responsibility towards nature. 

Prairie Moon Nursery's beginnings are rooted in Aldo Leopold's teachings and we would like to share his message with you. Reading this timeless classic will surely spark your passion for nature and land ethics. 226 pages.
