A Sand County Almanac

Over the years, this book by Aldo Leopold has been recommended by many as a good read. I was born and raised only 30 miles from his hometown. My farm life and closeness to nature were strong influences on how I saw the world. A month ago while browsing a used bookstore, I found this copy of his book and decided it was time to read it. I am so glad I did. Leopold’s reflections on the natural world and our place in it fit squarely with mine. If you have not yet read the book, I encourage you to do so.

    That’s a wonderful book. I first read it a couple of years ago or so. Thanks for the reminder. I just pulled it out and put it on my “reads for a rainy day” stack. I’m sure we will have a rainy day again — some day!

    I read Sand County Almanac years ago. It was a wonderful and educating read. We made sure we kept it when we downsized.
