"Wilderness it he raw material out of which man has hammered the artifact called civilization."
The most famous book by the Iowan born naturalist, writer, and teacher Aldo Leopold. Although not as well known as Thoreau, Edward Abbey, and Annie Dillard, he belongs in their company and like them he can be lyrical and observant with a fierce belief in the importance of the environment. This is the centenary edition published by Oxford University Press.

The description of this book does not do justice to this significant text of environmental philosophy. Aldo Leopold is considered to be the founder of "deep ecology" and his work is considered to be course material at the university level. This is not just another pretty book about nature!
