Aldo Leopold his life and thought ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1980 and 2006 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Narrated by Lorne Greene (Bonanza), this classic documentary presents the biography of Aldo Leopold (1887-1948), a renowned scientist, educator, philosopher, scholar and writer, who has been called the 'father of wildlife ecology, ' as well as the 'father of wildlife management'; the thoughts and reflections of this important naturalist have guided millions to discover what it means to live in harmony, not only with the land, but also with each other. Born in Burlington, Iowa, Leopold learned as a boy from his father how to look for and appreciate the many mysteries of nature. After graduating from Yale with a degree in Forestry, he joined the U.S. Forest Service as a ranger and supervisor in New Mexico and in 1924 succeeded in having the Gila National Forest designated as the first extensive wilderness area in the U.S. In 1933 he accepted a position to teach game management at the University of Wisconsin. In 1935 he moved his family into a run-down cabin, known as 'The Shack, ' and for years they planted trees in the area to help restore the land; also that year he and 7 other conservationists started The Wilderness Society, which continues today as an advocate to restore America's wilderness areas. All of these experiences led Leopold to write down his observations and thoughts about this new concept known as 'land ethic, ' and although he died one year before his famous book, A Sand County Almanac, was published, his ideas about nature and the environment continue today as his lasting legacy
