For the health of the land : previously unpublished essays and other writings by Aldo Leopold( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aldo Leopold's classic work A Sand County Almanac is widely regarded as one of the most influential conservation books of all time. In it, Leopold set forth an eloquent plea for the development of a "land ethic"--A belief that people have a responsibility to treat the soils, waters, plants, and animals that collectively comprise "the land" in ways that ensure their well-being."--BOOK JACKET. "For the Health of the Land is a new collection of rare and previously unpublished essays by Leopold that builds on that vision of ethical land use. It develops the important concept of "land health" - by which Leopold meant the capacity for self-renewal in nature - and the practical measures land-owners can take to sustain it."--Jacket

Round River; from the journals of Aldo Leopold by Aldo Leopold( Book )

8 editions published between 1953 and 1991 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To those who know the charm of Aldo Leopold's writing in A Sand County Almanac, this collection from his journals and essays will be a new delight. The journal entries included here were written in camp during his many field trips--hunting, fishing, and exploring--and they indicate the source of ideas on land ethics found in his longer essays. They reflect as well two long canoe trips in Canada and a sojourn in Mexico, where Leopold hunted deer with bow and arrow. The essays presented here are culled from the more contemplative notes which were still in manuscript form at the time of Leopold's

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
