Yellowstone National Park - photo by S. Auberle

There's an elegiac quality in watching American wilderness go, because it's our own myth, the American frontier, that's deteriorating before our eyes. I feel a deep sorrow that my kids will never get to see what I've seen, and their kids will see nothing. There's a deep sadness whenever I look at nature now.
- Peter Matthiessen
