A Sand County Almanac

Illustrated Edition

Aldo Leopold
Introduction by Kenneth Brower and Photographs by Michael Sewell

Aldo Leopold's A Sand County Almanac has enthralled generations of nature lovers and is indeed revered by everyone seriously interested in protecting the natural world. Hailed for prose that is "full of beauty and vigor and bite" (The New York Times), it is perhaps the finest example of nature writing since Thoreau's Walden. Now this classic work is available in a completely redesigned and lavishly illustrated edition, featuring over one hundred beautiful full-color pictures by Michael Sewell, one of the country's leading nature photographers. Sewell, whose work has graced the pages of Audubon and Sierra magazines, walked Leopold's property in Wisconsin and shot these photographs specifically for this edition.
