The reason we need wilderness is because we are really wild animals. Every man needs a place he can go, to go crazy in peace…. Only then can we return to man’s other life, to the other way, to the order and sanity and beauty of what will somewhere be, unless all visions are false, the human community.
—EDWARD ABBEY, US Environmental Advocate, 1927–89
