  • Only Worse Thing
    425 words
    We have just arrived here in the new world and I must say, things are so much different here. Some of the settlers have established small colonies but other then that the land here is wild and uncultivated. It's nothing like England. The voyage over here was the worst thing I have ever experienced in my life. Nearly half of our lord's people didn't even survive. The saddest part is that these people didn't even get proper burials. Instead they were dropped into the cold, harsh sea below. The con...

  • Land Into Our Idea Of Community
    738 words
    Land Ethics in Our Communities While wading through the reserved reading in the library, I came across the article, 'The Land Ethic'; , which caught my eye, as well as sparked an interest deep within me. It revealed the idea that we, as humans, tend to be quite caught up in the idea of community; community between neighbors, co-workers, etc. seems to be something we strive for in our society. It seems that we have not integrated the land into our idea of community, and I feel that this is a seri...

Between the 1950's and 1970's the Innu were settled in fixed communities, under pressure from the government and ...
  • Leopold's Land Ethics
    700 words
    A Sand County Almanac Leopold, Aldo Published in 1949 Oxford University Press, Inc. Would I recommend A Sand County Almanac to someone I know? Depending upon who it was, I would definitely recommend this book. I think I would suggest this book for someone who enjoys the outdoors. But someone who does not appreciate the outdoors, in my opinion, would not get as much out of the book. The reason I would recommend this book is because I thought it did a splendid job describing the tinniest things an...
