Book Reading, Slide Show and Discussion
with Jason Mark, author of “Satellites in the High Country: Search for the Wild in the Age of Man” (Island Press). 

“This book is a conversation with sanity.” - Terry Tempest Williams  

“In today’s world of human-made climate change and toxic waste detected as far as the polar ice caps, it’s almost impossible to find a corner of the globe untouched by human influence.  In the face of this sobering truth, a growing number of conservationists now see humanity’s most realistic stance toward protected lands as one of benign caretaking rather than hands-off preservation.  Yet, in this compellingly readable account of his quest to explore some of the planets last remaining stretches of authentic wilderness…Mark argues that safeguarding a powerful sense of “the Wild”…is more critical than ever…From Yosemite to the Badlands, to remoter places such as Alaska’s Brooks Range to Mexico’s Gila Wilderness…Mark presents a fresh, first-rate piece of nature writing and a stirring manifesto calling for the protection and celebration of the true spirit of wild places.” - Carl Hays
