Author's first book. When Aldo Leopold was named to the National Wildlife Federation's Conservation Hall of Fame in September, 1965, the Wisconsin State Journal wrote: "Aldo Leopold died in 1948, but he stands tall today, like a giant pine tree, visible from the remote corners of the land and from the concrete racetracks of civilization. His shadow has come to be the conscience of the monster ambition to make a great pinball machine of the world." Uncommon in this condition.
