STORIES FROM THE LEOPOLD SHACK ~








"In 1934, conservationist Aldo Leopold and his wife
Estella bought a barn — the remnant of a — farm and
surrounding lands in south-central Wisconsin. The entire
Leopold clan — five children in all — worked together
to put into practice Aldo's "land ethic", which involved
ecological restoration and sustainability. In the process,
they built more than a pleasant weekend getaway; they
established a new way of relating to nature. In 1948,
A Sand County Almanac was published, and it has
become a beloved and foundational text of the
conservation movement."

Leopold's youngest daughter's own memoir
can now be placed comfortably beside her father's
classic.
