I've lived in Wisconsin for almost three years now. There's a lot I still haven't done, but I did finally read Aldo Leopold's A Sand County Almanac. Though published over 50 years ago, the book is still relevant to our ongoing and increasingly urgent debate on how to take care of our wild areas and the planet as a whole. Many of Leopold's descriptions and observations are memorable. The only thing that may date the book are his references to "gadgets." I imagine that the number and variety of "gadgets" available to outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen has increased immeasurably since the book was published.
Leopold occasionally descends into a sort of crankiness about the changes mass tourism has brought to many wild areas. However, in part three of the book, "The Upshot,"Leopold seems more hopeful about the possibility of helping all people develop an appreciation of land and wildlife. Anyone new to Wisconsin or interested in the environment would enjoy it, and even those already familiar with the book could reread it quickly.
