A poignant description of the human condition wtih a personal perspective on how we have gotten here. Turner provides the reader with an insight that very few naturalist writers achieve due to the ever-changing ideas about the problems facing our existence and the abundance of supposed solutions. I came away more satisfied than ever that, as humans, we are refusing to accept our relationship within nature, that we are continuing to rapidly seperate ourselves from our environment while progressively(?!) insisting on our ability to control our surroundings. What struck me as most potent is the acknowledgement that we are removing all semblance of wildness around us and are becoming more and more disillusioned about what wild means. Losing touch with the inner sanctum of our own wild nature is catastrophic.
