The most important quotations of the most quoted figure in conservation, with commentaries by leading nature writers, conservationists, and environmental scholars
"Leopold helped redefine our understanding of the natural world and provided much of the foundation for the modern environmental movement. His legacy can be seen everywhere."—Janet Ginsburg, Chicago Tribune
"The Essential Aldo Leopold is a tribute to his amazing breadth, [drawing] on the voluminous range of Leopold's writings . . . from forest and range management to agriculture, to environmental policy, to the key role of
education in persuading Americans to embrace a land ethic and practice conservation."—Mike Dombeck, former chief, U.S. Forest Service, Wisconsin Magazine of History
"We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. . . . I was young then, and full of trigger itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters' paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view.'—Aldo Leopold
