Wilderness Ethics: Preserving the Spirit of Wildness

by

Wilderness Ethics: Preserving the Spirit of Wildness Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this environmental call to action, Laura and Guy Waterman look beyond preserving the ecology of the backcountry to focus on what they call its spiritual dimension--its fragile, untamed wildness. "Without some management, wildness cannot survive the number of people who seek to enjoy it," they write. "But with too much management, or the wrong kind, we can destroy the spiritual component of wildness in our zeal to preserve its physical side." Trailside huts and lodges, large groups seeking "wilderness experiences," federal and state regulations, and technology such as radios, cell phones, global positioning devices, and emergency helicopters, all have an impact on our experience. With humor and insight, the Watermans explore these difficult wilderness management issues. They ask us to evaluate the impact that even "environmentally conscious" values have on the wilderness experience, and to ask the question: What are we trying to preserve?

Book News Annotation:

The Waterman's wrote many books about camping, hiking, climbing, and other activities from the perspective of their homestead in Vermont. Here they argue that protecting the wilderness requires not just legislation, but a different way of thinking. Guy died in February 2000.

Synopsis:

Without some management, the world's wilderness cannot survive the number of people who seek to enjoy it. But with too much management, or the wrong kind, we will destroy the spiritual component of "wildness" in our zeal to preserve its physical side. With humor and insight, the Water-mans look beyond the ecology of the back-country to explore the factors that make it wild and consider the most difficult wilderness management issues facing us today.

Synopsis:

In February 2000 Guy Waterman died in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. In recognition of the renewed interest in his life and work, The Countryman Press is proud to reissue this classic text, with a new appreciation of her late husband by Laura Waterman.
