Abstract:

In 1934, conservationist Aldo Leopold and his wife Estella bought a barn - the remnant of a farm - and surrounding lands in south-central Wisconsin. The entire Leopold clan - five children in all - worked together to put into practice Aldo's "land ethic," which involved ecological restoration and sustainability. In the process, they established a new way of relating to nature. In 1948, A Sand County Almanac was published, and it has become a foundational text of the conservation movement. Decades later, the author, the youngest of the Leopold children,reflects on the "Shack," as they called the repurposed barn, and its inhabitants, and recalls the part it played in her and her siblings' burgeoning awareness of nature's miracles.
