August, 2002

Vance Martin, WILD’s President, contributes an editorial perspective, in which he calls for us to remember that: the ecological services wilderness provides go to everyone on the planet; and, the power of wilderness to move people in a transformative way. He reminds us that “wilderness has soul.” Christopher Monz provides an overview of an evaluation of evaluating student satisfaction in wilderness education courses, specifically from the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). John Shultis reviews several books including “Edward Abbey: A Life” by James M. Calahan. Other topics in this issue include:

  • Wilderness in South Africa
  • Cradle of Wilderness in the United States
