Think Like a Mountain
  • Think Like a Mountain

  • In twenty short books, Penguin brings you the classics of the environmental movement.

    In this lyrical meditation on America's wildlands, Aldo Leopold considers the different ways humans shape the natural landscape, and describes for the first time the far-reaching phenomenon now known as 'trophic cascades'.

    Over the past 75 years, a new canon has emerged. As life on Earth has become irrevocably altered by humans, visionary thinkers around the world have raised their voices to defend the planet, and affirm our place at the heart of its restoration. Their words have endured through the decades, becoming the classics of a movement. Together, these books show the richness of environmental thought, and point the way to a fairer, saner, greener world.

Aldo Leopold (1887-1948) was a forester and conservationist whose writings on wildlife ecology sowed the seeds of contemporary environmental thought.
