Companion to A Sand County Almanac
Interpretive and Critical Essays
Edited by J. Baird Callicott


The first sustained study of Leopold's seminal book as a work of art, philosophy, and social commentary.

Aldo Leopold's A Sand County Almanac is the bible for the modern American conservation movement, its capstone essay, "The Land Ethic," repeatedly invoked by scholars, professionals, and environmentally aware citizens everywhere. This volume engages Leopold's work from several disciplinary perspectives—biography, social and intellectual history, natural history, resource management, literary criticism, and philosophy.

The contributors to this volume include some of the leading scholars of Leopold and of environmental ethics in the nation: Curt Meine of the University of Wisconsin–Madison; Susan Flader of the University of Missouri–Columbia; Peter Fritzell and Dennis Ribbens of Lawrence University; Roderick Nash of the University of California at Santa Barbara; Edwin P. Pister of the California Department of Fish and Game; Holmes Rolston III of Colorado State University; John Tallmadge of Carleton College; and Wallace Stegner of Stanford University.
