Publisher's Summary

Not since Thoreau took us to Walden Pond has there been such an important work on the natural world. A Sand County Almanac is Aldo Leopold's simple expression of feeling for the environment at his weekend farm along the Wisconsin River. It is an inviting, gentle world, one that is rapidly disappearing.Told with metaphor and poetic allusion, this audio magically takes you on a journey into nature. You'll experience the history of a region in every ax blow to a tree. You'll walk behind Leopold on a moss-paved deer trail, pursuing quail. And you'll mourn with him about the vanishing white pines. A Sand County Almanac's uncommon blend of a poet's soul and a prophet's vision is as timely today as when it first appeared over 50 years ago.

Good book, but...

I love this book, it is beautifully written and wonderfully put together. The only problem I had, is that this version is only half of the actual book - it is literally only Part I of the four parts that are in the paperback edition.

Where is the rest?

Part I of the book was good but where is Part II and Part III. It would have been better if you got the whole book.

Nice text shame about the narration

The pace of this book is quite slow and gentle - however it is rendered turgid by the narration unfortunately. Difficult to finish.

This is not the full book!

The audio book is only the first 3rd of the full book. By purchasing this book you will miss a good chunk of the story line and the ultimate conclussion.
