Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-An appealing biography in a story format. Lorbiecki succinctly descibes her subject's early childhood adventures bird watching, hunting, and fishing; his student days at Yale; his work with the U.S. Forestry Service; and his teaching and extensive writings. Woven into the narrative of Leopold's growing concern for the fate of wildlife and his advocacy of the preservation of wilderness areas is the personal story of the man, including his relationships among a warm supportive circle of family and friends, all of whom sustained him during periods of severe illness and financial difficulties. The author effectively communicates a sense of Leopold's vision and chronicles his achievements and setbacks in an accessible style. Her admiration is evident, but she wisely lets readers learn conservation lessons about protecting ``things natural, wild, and free'' from Leopold's own words. A bibliography of primary and secondary sources is included. There is a portrait of Aldo Leopold in the front of the book; each chapter has a black-and-white illustration.-Carolyn Angus, The Claremont Graduate School, CA
Sheilamae O
Aldo Leopold's first exposure to nature came in childhood during long walks and talks with his father, and he determined, at an early age, to make his living as a forester. However, it was only after his formal education ended and he began working in the field that he realized the interdependency of every species in a community. Although he had once helped hunt wolves to extinction, he came to see that without them the deer population grew out of control, threatening the health of the herd and the forest. He wrote, lectured, and taught about land management and put his beliefs into practice by transforming 80 acres of exhausted farmland into a nature refuge where the rhythm of the land and its inhabitants was respected. Lorbiecki gives a sense of the man and his passion. The pencil sketches that illustrate the text are uninspiring but serviceable. This book may be of use in a unit on careers or the environment.
