"Leslie Miller believes we can use these stories and essays to 'reimagine western landscapes.' And she asks us to do so in ways that 'contribute to the welfare of wild nature in the twenty-first century.' This is a tall order. But the writers in her book map our path. Jeremy Schmidt reminds us that 'Wildness is everywhere. It is part of us... the matrix in which we live.' Erin Halcomb prays, 'For restraint: To stop myself from taking, and doing.' And Harvey Locke sums up our challenge: 'To right the wrongs done to Nature, to native people, and to ourselves in a place that we call home.' So, what are you going to do?" --Stephen Trimble, author of Bargaining for Eden: The Fight for the Last Open Spaces in the West "Reading through this anthology, brought back childhood moments of discovery as well as the answers to questions that have lingered since then. Aside from the personal gift to people like myself with an abiding interest in the wild dwellers that preceded us on this land, Reimagining a Place for the Wild will be an invaluable resource in college courses. Congratulations to the authors for this outstanding anthology." --Florence R. Shepard, author with Susan Marsh of Saving Wyoming's Hoback
