On The Importance of Wilderness

For me and thousands of others with similar inclinations, the most important passion in life is the overpowering desire to escape periodically from the strangling clutch of mechanistic civilization. To us the enjoyment of solitude, complete independence, and the beauty of undefiled panoramas is absolutely essential to happiness.
