"Leopold" by Aldo Leopold

I'm currently reading "Leopold".  "Leopold" is an expanded version of his writings and contains all the essays from "A Sand County Almanac" and "Round River" which I had read previously.   Aldo Leopold is considered one of the early fathers of modern day conservation.  Although well traveled as a naturalist he ended up in Madison as a professor and bought a distressed farm along the Wisconsin River south of Madison.   The essays take a look at our "relationship" to the "land" which includes all the flora, fauna and water. His writings have a profound influence on how I relate our natural world.

A great writer as well as a brilliant thinker

However in the interest of geographical correctness his farm is north of Madison about halfway between Portage and Wisconsin Dells.

Thanks Solus.  It's no wonder that I get "turned around" once in a while.
