Overview

The Ragged Mountain Portable Wilderness Anthology is designed to ride in the pack,to accompany adventurers with the encouragement of other adventurers,to harmonize the contemplation of wild places with the echoes of other wild places. The voices range from ancient to contemporary,but most are North American,and the places of which they speak as strangely familiar as the geography of the soul. The mediations of Henry David Thoreau,Ralph Waldo Emerson,Walt Whitman,Emily Dickinson,Robert Service,James Fenimore Cooper,Joseph Conrad,John Muir,Aldo Leopold,John James Audubon,Jack London,Theodore Roosevelt,and many other voices from North American frontiers are here. Native American voices plead for the preservation of what the Europeans called the New World. And some of the best contemporary scribes of the natural world inform our senses and challenge us to look beneath the surfaces of stream,mountain,forest,and desert for deeper meanings.
