A Sand County Almanac

A Sand County Almanac

by Aldo Leopold

A Sand County Almanac is a 1949 non-fiction book written by American ecologist and environmentalist Aldo Leopold.

A delightful romp through history with all its economic forces laid bare, Cod is the biography of a single species of fish, but it may as well be a world history with this humble fish as its recurring main character. Cod, it turns out, is the reason Europeans set sail across the Atlantic, and it is the only reason they could.
