Aldo Leopold's Odyssey illuminates the great conservationist's lifelong quest for answers to a fundamental question: how can people live prosperously on the land and keep it healthy, too? Leopold's journey took him from Iowa to Yale to the Southwest to Wisconsin, with stops along the way to probe the causes of land settlement failures, contribute to the emerging science of ecology, compose his best known work, "A Sand County Almanac", and craft a new vision for land use. More than a biography, this insightful work is a guide to one person's intellectual growth and to our ongoing struggle to live in concert with the natural world.
