    One thought on “Round River”

    1. This is a real gem, Leopold at his best. It's been awhile since I've thumbed through Sand County, but I have to put this one right up there. Pulled from his journals, most essays are timeless little vision quests into the wilderness we depend on to survive as a species. Although he's a true master of his scientific craft, Leopold doesn't get bogged down with technicalities. His passion is the driving force.

    2. I haven't ever read Sand Country Almanac but I will now. Round River was like meeting a fellow hiker on the trail, like having your morning coffee with you grandfather, and maybe like buying your new fishing rod. I like Aldo Leopold, and it's clear to see why so many become conservationists after reading his work. He speaks plainly and without "fluff" about the world around us. Leopold does not need to cite countless papers and journals, because he reflects solely upon his own life experiences. [...]

    3. Reading some of the reviews, I wonder did these people actually read this book?Despite that this book includes one of my favorite quotes as an ecologist, considering Leopold's reputation as a conservationist, much of this book is kind of horrifying. It includes basically a log of all the wildlife he slaughters including a list of the entrails and body parts of a herd of deer they kill. I suppose a hunter might find it interesting but owing to Leopold's reputation, it's hard to take. People have [...]

    4. I was introduced to Leopold in college. A Sand County Almanac was a profound and life changing read for me. This book, or rather a collection of essays and journals, is not as in depth or profound as Almanac, but it still put me right back in that place and mindset.This book may come as a surprise to modern day arm chair environmentalists because in my experience, some think of hunting as diametrically opposed to environmentalism. Nothing could be further from the truth. A giant part of the cons [...]

    5. Didn't love it as much as Sand County Almanac, but still a lovely book and glimpse into Leopold's relationship with his son through journals of their hunting and fishing trips together. A good detox after a couple violent and dark books in a row.

    6. Aldo Leopold is one of the seminal nature writers and advocates of out time. His books tell not only of a theory of action, of an approach to the world, but also of a man who himself is emblematic of a righter way of being in regard to the natural world.

    7. Great writing. I found myself taking pictures of certain passages so that I can save them for when people ask me, "Why did you want to become a wildlife ecologist?" He's great at explaining the reasons and motivations ecologists have for what they do.

    8. An interesting look at hunting that gave this non-hunter a little more insight and understanding. Leopold's passionate view of conservation must have made him seem nuts to the people of the 30s and 40s admirable!

    9. Amazing individual; love his understanding of conservation and environmental ecology. The last few chapters of this book - I believe from "Conservation" onwards - made the entire read very powerful.

    10. An good book, although not of the profundity of A Sand County Almanac (probably because they were simply trip journals which Leopold never intended to be published.)
