#ForewordFriday: Aldo Leopold's Odyssey Edition

In 2006, Julianne Lutz Warren asked readers to rediscover one of history’s most renowned conservationists. Drawing on unpublished archives and her own expertise in ecology and conservation, Warren artfully traced Leopold’s intellectual journey across Iowa, Yale, the southwest, and Wisconsin, in his lifelong efforts to reconcile how we can live prosperously, yet keep the land healthy. Warren’s astute narrative quickly became an essential part of the Leopold canon, introducing new readers to the father of wildlife ecology, and offering a fresh perspective to even the most seasoned scholars. A decade later, Warren’s Aldo Leopold's Odyssey, Tenth Anniversary Edition asks us to take another look at Aldo Leopold’s quest to preserve land health in the context of the Anthropocene.
