Visions of a Wild America
The American landscape: Its wildness has made us inventive. Its vastness has made us bold. Its great teachers -- concerned voices -- have told us who we are and where, in the presence or absence of wildness, we might go. Complemented by more than a hundred photographs that capture our nation's preserved places, the uncommon, remarkable adventures and quiet epiphanies of our great conservationists are rendered anew, creating hope that we might one day see the land as a community, not a commodity. A living place to be honored and preserved.
