A Sand County Almanac

Evan had to read A Sand County Almanac in college in an American Studies class so we've had the book sitting around for years. It's been one of those books I thought, "I should read that." I finally got around to it.

A Sand County Almanac is a book of reflections from naturist Aldo Leopold from his farm in Wisconsin. It is one of the major environmental writings of the twentieth century.

I wasn't overwhelmed with it. I don't know why I didn't like it, but it certainly didn't grab me like Silent Spring, another famous environmental book. I finished it only because I felt I should. I think that I'm going to read some John Muir next. I hope that I enjoy it more.
