“Historically accurate, musically significant”

“The album’s quite a wonder. Akin to its Leopoldian point of view, an eagle’s eye. The wise humility quietly disarms, and inspires one to slow down and wake up – the geese are striking up the band.”
Kevin Lynch, Writer / No Depression, Shepherd Express
Tim’s down-to-earth original vocals and instrumentals take you to the heart of Leopold’s reflections on Sand County. While his performance is thoroughly engaging, entertaining and often humorous, it remains a reverent, thought-provoking homage to the man who inspired us to see the natural world “as a community to which we belong.”
