Synopsis: Aldo Leopold was America's foremost conservationist and environmental scholar. He is renowned for starting the national wilderness system, founding the field of wildlife management and ecology, and writing the conservation classic A Sand County Almanac. He devoted his life to the question, "How do we live on the land without spoiling it?" Both his work and his writings continue to inspire millions of people in their efforts to solve this problem.
Written in a clear, accessible style, this biography reveals the background, early inspiration, and triumphs of Aldo Leopold. Marybeth Lorbiecki traces Leopold's development as a leader in the conservationist movement and explores his environmental writings, achievements, and philosophy. At the same time, Lorbiecki examines Leopold's life as a husband and father, allowing readers to see for the first time both the personal and public side of this great educator, writer, advocate, and philosopher.

Review: Aldo Leopold (1886-1948) is revered among environmentalists and naturalists for many reasons: as an officer of the U.S. Forest Service, he was instrumental in formulating policies that helped protect wildlands and wild animals; as an activist, he helped found the Wilderness Society and other public-interest organizations; and as a writer, he crafted a number of fine, philosophically charged essays and books, including his famous memoir, A Sand County Almanac. Marybeth Lorbiecki's overview of Leopold's life addresses each of these contributions in turn, and it does a good job of explaining why Leopold's influence should endure today. Of added interest are the many photographs Lorbiecki has discovered in family and government archives, images that help flesh out a figure who has, in ecological circles, become something of a saint--and, as a result, a little unreal. Curt Meine's Aldo Leopold: His Life and Work addresses Leopold's work in greater depth, but readers seeking a sense of his many contributions, and why they matter, will find much of value in Lorbiecki's well-written pages. --Gregory McNamee
