Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Leopold is the most significant conservationist of the last seventy years and this is the first full-scale biography, the first to make such extensive use of the Leopold papers.  Thus it makes available reams of material that can be found nowhere else.  There is no other book like this one."—Stephen Fox, author of The American Conservation Movement

 "This is a story well worth reading and, happily, it's good fun to boot.  The author has skillfully captured Leopold the man, the scientist, the philosopher—furthermore, anyone who begins to read it will soon be captured, too."—Gaylord Nelson
