Course Description:

Since the dawn of humanity, our deep ties to nature have produced both wonder and challenge. Two important literary works examine our exceedingly complex relationship with the environment: Aldo Leopold's "A Sand County Almanac," published in 1949, considered a classic on par with the writings of John Muir; and Elizabeth Kolbert's Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Sixth Extinction," released in 201. In this four-part offering, we will delve into these eloquent and evocative examinations of the intricacies of human interaction with the natural world.
