“What will happen to us when our children have no connection with what is wild in the land, its depth, danger, generosity? What will life be like for children who do not grow up paying close attention to it and testing themselves against it? And what will happen to those children who ache for it, as I did, but cannot find it anywhere?”

“Going Back to the Land,” in Settled in the Wild: Notes from the Edge of Town (Chapel Hill, NC: Algonquin Books, 2010), 15.
