Aldo Leopold's Odyssey Summary


Aldo Leopold's Odyssey: Rediscovering the Author of A Sand County Almanac by Julianne Lutz Warren

Aldo Leopold's Odyssey illuminates the great conservationist's lifelong quest for answers to a fundamental question: how can people live prosperously on the land and keep it healthy, too? Leopold's journey took him from Iowa to Yale to the Southwest to Wisconsin, with stops along the way to probe the causes of land settlement failures, contribute to the emerging science of ecology, compose his best known work, "A Sand County Almanac", and craft a new vision for land use. More than a biography, this insightful work is a guide to one person's intellectual growth and to our ongoing struggle to live in concert with the natural world.

Aldo Leopold's Odyssey Reviews


"Julianne Lutz Newton makes us feel the loss of what might have followed A Sand County Almanac by showing us in authoritative detail what led up to it. The result is a biography of ideas, a map of how far Leopold had moved between 1909...and his death..." - THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW "Aldo Leopold's Odyssey enriches our appreciation of both Leopold and A Sand County Almanac." - SCIENCE "Lucid and perceptive." - NATURAL HISTORY "Superb...a full and fascinating portrait." - AMERICAN SCIENTIST"
