People need wild places. Whether or not we think we do, we do… We need to be able to experience a landscape that is timeless, whose agenda moves at the pace of speciation and glaciers… Wildness puts us in our place. It reminds us that our plans are small and somewhat absurd… Looking out on a clean plank of planet earth, we can get shaken right down to the bone by the bronze-eyed possibility of lives that are not our own.

– Barbara Kingsolver
