A love letter to wilderness, this short video celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 1964 U.S. Wilderness Act in stunning images and excerpts of poetry and words from Edward Abbey, Ralph Waldo Emerson, John Muir and Wallace Stegner.
In the last fifty years, designated wilderness areas in the United States have grown from nine to 109 million acres, including national forests, national parks, national wildlife refuges, and Bureau of Land Management lands.
As Muir once wrote, “Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity.”
