With this book you will travel beyond the
bright lights and certainties of our cities to seek wildness wherever
it survives. These expeditions to the edges of civilization's grid
show us that, although our notions of pristine nature may be
shattering, the mystery of the wild still exists — and in fact, it
is more crucial than ever. But wildness is wily as a coyote: you have
to be willing to track it to understand the least thing about it.
Satellites in the High Country is an epic journey on the trail
of the wild, a poetic and incisive exploration of its meaning and
enduring power in our Human Age.
