Leopold was a renowned conservationist and educator who devoted his life to preservation of the natural environment. His classic work, Sand County Almanac (1949; Oxford Univ. Pr., 1989. pap.), is still used as the conservationists' bible. Flader and Callicott have compiled a collection of Leopold's unpublished essays from the archives of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and published papers from a variety of periodicals covering the years 1904-47. The chronological arrangement of the 59 essays reveals the development of Leopold's beliefs over time. A short introduction describing the circumstances in which it was written and the intended audience precedes each essay. A biographical chronology and the introduction trace Leopold's life. Recommended for environmental collections.
