Conhecimento Comum



A wonderful book. Well written, thoughtful, poetic, demonstrating a deep understanding of the natural world and its importance to us, not just to help us survive but to help us to live well alongside our cousins the duck, the otter, the tamarack and the oak. Essential reading for anyone who cares about the natural world, and even more essential for those who don't.

Mark Twain said, “A classic is something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read.” If you spend any time at all reading ecological literature, you will see A Sand County Alamanc referred to as one of the classics in the genre. But in this case, Twain is wrong. This is a wonderful book. Leopold has a wry style; never out-and-out funny, but enough to keep my smiling throughout much of the book. He also deploys references historical, philosophical, religious, and literary, giving the text a rich texture. But Leopold also has a deadly serious point to the book. And he makes his case well, which is why people have been reading this book for 70 years. I highly, highly recommend the book.… (mais)

Beautifully written. I can't believe this was written in the 1940s. Essential reading for those interested in conservancy or anything to do with the natural world around us. I will be returning to this book often to reexamine the world around us.

A poetic book of observational science, and ideal reading for scientists, business people and politicians accustomed to different languages.
