A Sand County Almanac

by Aldo Leopold

American nature classic.

A Sand County Almanac

It turns out that this classic of American nature writing had somehow completely eluded this nature-writing fanboy. This might well be due to my rather parochial enjoyment of the genre. Perhaps I should branch out across the Pond more often.

Well done to Jen for spotting a reference to this book in the Guardian and buying me a copy. I enjoyed it very much indeed—particularly the monthly-journal-type entries. It reminded me of Roger Deakin's Notes From Walnut Tree Farm, which is praise indeed—although Leopold was writing from Wyoming, not Suffolk.
