Picked up this book while finishing Desert Solitaire (Abbey). Abbey is from the Northeast, Leopold is from the Midwest, and their differences uphold the stereotypes in writing. Abbey is scrappy, aggressive, and forthright. Leopold begins more conservative with his opinions, lyrical, and humble. But toward the end of the book, Aldo unleashes his pointed critique of our unsustainable way of life in a manner that is far more articulate, accurate, and therefore more scathing. Alarmingly, the environmental issues that he addressed over 50 years ago in this collection of essays remain serious issues to this day.
