Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once again HighBridge is pleased to offer an extraordinary collection from leading American nature authors. Originally published by NorthWord Audio Press, now re-released with new packaging, each story explores the bond that connects the land and humans. For Lopez, the connection is spiritual and transforming; for Doig, the land is both the forge that shapes us and the cord tying us to family; for Leopold, the environment is the touchstone that puts the past and the future into perspective. Engaging and enchanting, these audios are wonderful choices for all those who love nature and the environment.

Synopsis:

First published in 1949 and praised in The New York Times Book Review as "a trenchant book, full of vigor and bite," A SAND COUNTY ALMANAC combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land.

As the forerunner to such important books as Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Edward Abbey's Desert Solitaire, and Robert Finch's The Primal Place, this classic work remains as relevant today as it was nearly sixty years ago.
