Summary

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.. "For the Health of the Land is a new collection of rare and previously unpublished essays by Leopold that builds on that vision of ethical land use.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.
