A Sand County Almanac Book Discussion

June 6 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

Join us for a discussion of A Sand County Almanac, by Aldo Leopold, to be led by James Holtkamp, a prominent Salt Lake attorney and community leader. We will meet in Conference Room 3 of the Salt Lake Main Library at 6:30 pm.

First published in 1949, Aldo Leopold’s book combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America’s relationship to the land.
Written with an unparalleled understanding of the ways of nature, the book includes a section on the monthly changes of the Wisconsin countryside; another part that gathers informal pieces written by Leopold over a forty-year period as he traveled through the woodlands of Wisconsin, Iowa, Arizona, Sonora, Oregon, Manitoba, and elsewhere; and a final section in which Leopold addresses the philosophical issues involved in wildlife conservation.
As a forerunner of such important books as Annie Dillard’s “Pilgrim at Tinker Creek,” Edward Abbey’s “Desert Solitaire,” and Robert Finch’s “The Primal Place,” this classic work remains as relevant today as it was sixty-five years ago.
