Leslie Hughes HIST 3327-001 3/23/09 The Land Ethic I chose to write about the essays written by Aldo Leopold in A Sand County Almanac, because I absolutely loved all of his short essays and the overall idea of them. In his biography Leopold is introduced as the father of environmental ethics, and the essays in A Sand County Almanac show how he came up with his ethical thinking towards land and wildlife. Leopold starts off with an essay Marshland Elegy, which was the story about the crane migrating to the Wisconsin area and how much the farming and hay industries changed the land that the cranes migrated to. Leopold talks about how the glaciers formed the areas of marshland that the birds likes to migrate to and how all of these different aspects of that ecosystem had to work together to maintain. He then talks about how hay growers and farmers come in and burn and cut the land to a point where it can no longer regenerate itself to the place it once was. Then there was the story the Odyssey which was my favorite it was about two atoms X and Y.
