Overview

The Great Remembering is an activist's exploration of the meaning of land to our culture. It is also a call to land conservationists to redefine the promise of their work as the building of relationships between land and people.

The Trust for Public Land's companion book, Our Land, Ourselves (1999) gathers together a diverse collection of readings on the many themes of people and place, and suggests a new way of viewing land conservation as the process of shaping human lives. The Great Remembering goes a step further, arguing that land conservation has the power to transform the heart of our communities and to restore a set of values to a society that is increasingly fragmented and individualistic. The Great Remembering presents new themes and a radical new purpose for why we save land, and explores what this means to the soul of our society.
