Of wilderness and wolves by Paul L Errington( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tracing his own relationship with wolves from his rural South Dakota upbringing through his formative years as a professional trapper to his landmark work as an internationally renowned wildlife biologist, Errington delves into our irrational fear of wolves. He forthrightly criticizes what he views as humanity's prejudice against an animal that continues to serve as the very emblem of the wilderness we claim to love, but that too often falls prey to our greed and ignorance. A friend of Aldo Leopold, Errington was an important figure in the conservation efforts in the first half of the twentieth century. During his lifetime, wolves were considered vicious, wantonly destructive predators; by the mid-1900s, they had been almost completely eliminated from the lower forty-eight states. Their reintroduction to their historical range today remains controversial."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Aldo Leopold es una de las figuras míticas del ecologismo contemporáneo. Desde aquella ocasión en la que, siendo muy joven, una loba murió en sus brazos ?y entendió que la desaparición de lo salvaje traerá el fin de nuestro mundo? hasta el momento de su muerte mientras intentaba apagar un incendio forestal, Leopold dedicó toda su vida a la preservación de la naturaleza. Fue guardabosques y profesor, activista y escritor, y entre sus múltiples libros destaca este que os presentamos: un clásico indispensable a la misma altura que «Walden» de Thoreau. Con un lenguaje tan poético como directo, tan repleto de humor como de sabiduría, «Un año en Sand County» se abre con una frase emblemática: «Hay quien puede vivir sin lo salvaje y quien no puede». Tal como sugirió el propio Leopold, éste es, por tanto, un libro para todos aquellos para los que ver gansos salvajes atravesando el cielo es más importante que ver la televisión.En la primera parte del volumen, el autor nos relata, mes a mes, las temporadas que pasa en su refugio contra la excesiva modernidad: una vieja granja de Wisconsin entre cuyas paredes y en los bosques que la rodean, alejado de la interminable plétora de bendiciones materiales del mundo contemporáneo, encuentra su alimento sagrado. En la segunda parte del libro nos narra algunos de los episodios que han marcado su vida desde el punto de vista de la ecología y el activismo medioambiental, y que, a lo largo de cuarenta años y un continente, le han permitido constatar la profunda herida que estamos causando a la Tierra. Finalmente, en la última parte, Leopold nos propone una reflexión lúcida y profunda sobre los caminos posibles para recrear nuestra relación con lo vivo, a través de la primera teoría para una ética de la tierra. Con millones de lectores a lo largo de varias generaciones, éste es uno de los escritos más importantes e influyentes de la historia de la ecología y el conservacionismo

About mammals and how they live by Charles Walsh Schwartz( Book )

2 editions published between 1981 and 1993 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book was developed as a companion volume to "The Wild Mammals of Missouri." But since that previously published book was somewhat restricted geographically, the current one has been expanded to include all wild, land-dwelling mammals of North America north of Mexico. Domestic mammals and mammals adapted to life in the ocean and adjacent fresh-water estuaries are excluded except for an occasional reference. The emphasis of the text is on observing the habits and behavior of mammals; only occasionally is some physiological aspect included. And to make the information available to all reading levels, relatively few technical terms are included. --From preface (p. vi)
