Have you ever had the chance to see the courtship dance of the sandhill crane? Have you been stumped by the question, "is that a spruce, fir, or pine?" What do pasque-flowers, prairie chickens, and the Swainson's hawk have in common ? (Spring, of course! One blooms, one booms, and the other looms high overhead, all in a Colorado April). Where are the best places to see mountain goats, bugling elk, and snow geese? And have you asked yourself, "what is that butterfly doing flittering around in February?"

First published in 1949 and praised in The New York Times Book Review as "a trenchant book, full of vigor and bite," A Sand County Almanac combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land. Written with an unparalleled understanding of the ways of nature, the book includes a section on the monthly changes of the Wisconsin countryside; another part that gathers informal pieces written by Leopold over a forty-year period as he traveled through the woodlands of Wisconsin, Iowa, Arizona, Sonora, Oregon, Manitoba, and elsewhere; and a final section in which Leopold addresses the philosophical issues involved in wildlife conservation. As the forerunner of such important books as Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Edward Abbey's Desert Solitaire, and Robert Finch's The Primal Place, this classic work remains as relevant today as it was forty years ago.
