Summary

Not since Thoreau took us to Walden Pond has there been such an important work on the natural world. A Sand County Almanac is Aldo Leopold's simple expression of feeling for the environment at his weekend farm along the Wisconsin River. It is an inviting, gentle world - one that is rapidly disappearing. Told with metaphor and poetic allusion, this audio magically takes you on a journey into nature. You'll experience the history of a region in every ax blow to a tree. You'll walk behind Leopold on a moss-paved deer trail, pursuing quail. And you'll mourn with him about the vanishing white pines. A Sand County Almanac's uncommon blend of a poet's soul and a prophet's vision is as timely today as when it first appeared over 50 years ago.

Nice text shame about the narration

The pace of this book is quite slow and gentle - however it is rendered turgid by the narration unfortunately. Difficult to finish.

Good book, but...

I love this book, it is beautifully written and wonderfully put together. The only problem I had, is that this version is only half of the actual book - it is literally only Part I of the four parts that are in the paperback edition.

Where is the rest?

Part I of the book was good but where is Part II and Part III. It would have been better if you got the whole book.
