Product Description

First published in 1949 and praised in The New York Times Book Review as “a trenchant book, full of vigor and bite,” A Sand County Almanac combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land.

As the forerunner to such important books as Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Edward Abbey's Desert Solitaire, and Robert Finch's The Primal Place, this classic work remains as relevant today as it was nearly sixty years ago.


“We can place this book on the shelf that holds the writings of Thoreau and John Muir.”
      —The San Francisco Chronicle

“One of the seminal works of the environmental movement.”
      —The Boston Globe
