“The wild is where you find it, not in some distant world relegated to a nostalgic past or an idealized future; its presence is not black or white, bad or good, corrupted or innocent... We are of that nature, not apart from it. We survive because of it, not instead of it.”
Renee Askins

“Being enabled, like being loved, is one of the marvels of the world's benevolence. It is to be given wings.”
Renee Askins, Shadow Mountain: A Memoir of Wolves, a Woman, and the Wild
