by Peter ForbesOur Land, Ourselves is a collection of diverse readings on the many themes of people and place — themes such as the protection of wilderness and the idea of the wild, the nature of home, the purpose of work, and the meaning of community.These voices suggest a new way of viewing land conservation as the process of building values and positively shaping human lives.
~~from the back cover
I don't think the book succeeded in getting me to view land conservation in any different way than I already did.The book is composed of short (and some not-so-short) snippets of prose from a variety of environmental or nature writers.It was definitely "preaching to the choir", and none of the prose was lyrical, or drew the reader into the silence of wilderness, or the beauty of a mountain lake.
I was disappointed.
