Can be read in any number of ways -- an homage to John Muir, a survey of land use in Scotland versus the United States, an effort to understand the Native American view of the land, a stab at a memoir, and a search for roots, and rootedness. Held together by a reverence toward 'place' in shaping human lives. Serious but not solemn.
