Aldo Leopold was an outdoorsman, forester and philosopher and his 'A Sand County Almanac', published posthumously in 1949 has become both a classic in American nature writing and a cornerstone of environmental ethics. Leopold's biographer, Curt Meine explores how a shack and an abandoned farm in Wisconsin became the inspiration for Leopold's environmental manifesto.
