Thus even to preserve our national parks we must learn to use naturally the land that lies outside their boundaries. It is not likely that we will manage this as long as we consider ourselves nature’s natural enemies. As a step in the right direction, we might try to think of ourselves not as rapists of the landscape, but as its clumsy and naive lovers.
