The Essential Aldo Leopold: Quotations and Commentariesby Curt D. Meine, Richard L. Knight
For the first time, the most important quotations from the writing of the great conservationist Aldo Leopold gathered in one volume. From conservation education to wildlife ecology, from wilderness protection to soil and water conservation, the works of Aldo Leopold continue to have profound influence on those seeking to understand the land and its care.
“We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. I realized then, and have known ever since, that there was something new to me in those eyessomething known only to her and to the mountain. I was young then, and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters' paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view.”Aldo Leopold
