April’s book of the month is “A Sand County Almanac”, by Aldo Leopold. Since his death in 1948, Aldo Leopold has been increasingly recognized as one of the indispensable figures of American environmentalism. A pioneering forester, sportsman, wildlife manager, and ecologist, he was also a gifted writer whose farsighted land ethic is proving increasingly relevant in our own time. Now, Leopold’s essential contributions to our literature–some hard-to-find or previously unpublished–are gathered in a single volume for the first time.
