“Sas soon as we label something as "natural", we attach to it the powerful implication that any change from its current state would degrade and damage the way it is "supposed" to be”
William Cronon, Uncommon Ground: Rethinking the Human Place in Nature

“As soon as we label something as "natural", we attach to it the powerful implication that any change from its current state would degrade and damage the way it is "supposed" to be.”
William Cronon, Uncommon Ground: Rethinking the Human Place in Nature

“The dream of an unworked natural landscape is very much the fantasy of people who have never themselves had to work the land to make a living.”
William Cronon
