"One of the seminal works of the environmental movement."--The Boston Globe "I have used this text for twenty years and will continue to use it....It should be required reading for every high school senior."--Walter L. Cook, Jr., University of Georgia "An inspirational classic--as relevant today as it was when first published in 1949."--Paul S. Miko, University of New Mexico "We can place this book on the shelf that holds the writings of Thoreau and John Muir."--The San Francisco Chronicle "It is safe to assume that A Sand County Almanac will be read for decades, and probably centuries to come."--William Vogt "Any student of the natural resources and the environment is not yet educated if he or she has not read A Sand County Almanac."--Paul T. Tueller, University of Nevada at Reno "A classic book, good to have in a [relatively] inexpensive edition."--Professor Marshall Spector, State University of New York "A fine book--Robert Finch's introduction enhances a classic text."--Luther Erickson, Grinnell College "Beautiful edition!"--Abby Lito, Middlebury College "Special edition comments put this classic in needed perspective for modern students."--Burton E.
