Aldo Leopold, Narrator is the most important character of the book. Aldo is a person who loves and respects nature and is saddened by the way nature has been ousted by progress in the modern society. His main purpose is to show people through his words how wonderful nature is and how many great memories he has attained throughout the course of his young life. He does a great job at describing the way nature works and how he has seen it. He introduces the reader to animals and plants that are rare and have not been made popular by mass consumption.
