Conservationist Aldo Leopold writes with a poetic style that brings alive the flora and fauna of the Wisconsin River farm he restored to a wildlife habitat. His work, which takes listeners through a year at that farm, has inspired conservationists since it was first published in 1949. Stewart L. Udall reads with a rough-hewn voice that still carries a poetic grace that is fitting for the writing of a lifelong outdoorsman. It's not a conversational tone, yet it conveys all of Leopold's love for nature, skill at creating mental images, and awareness of the challenges involved in preserving nature. These writings give listeners a glimpse of the noted conservationist's efforts and spirit. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
