A book club discussion of Aldo Leopold’s classic collection of essays, “A Sand County Almanac and Sketches Here and There.”
In the forward to the book Leopold writes, “there are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot…Like winds and sunsets, wild things were taken for granted until progress began to do away with them. Now we face the question whether a still higher ‘standard of living’ is worth its cost in things natural, wild, and free. For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese is more important than television and the chance to find a pasque-flower is a right as inalienable as free speech.”
If you one of those who “cannot live without wild things” please join us to discuss the book. (it will be more fun than Thursday night television but we probably won’t see geese)
