Wisconsin Land and Life

Arnold Alanen, Series Editor

The many layers of human history and activity that are expressed in Wisconsin’s landscapes provide a distinctiveness and uniqueness that is certainly evident within the Midwest, if not the entire nation. This book series celebrates and documents the landscapes and cultures of Wisconsin with its focus on two types of works: new volumes that represent recent scholarship and research, and reprints of Wisconsin classics that will appeal to contemporary readers.

Please send all inquiries to Arnold Alanen and Gwen Walker.

“A significant and important story about how a small group of landowners, inspired by Aldo Leopold, pioneered private conservation and ecological restoration. It offers an insightful reflection on what it means to live the ‘land ethic’ that is quite relevant to today’s growing conservation challenges.”
