In this issue’s Soul of the Wilderness article, David Cole addresses the conflicting, desirable and important values of wilderness: wild, natural, un-crowded and free. John Shultis contributes commentary on how humans, while ultimately fearing that technology will destroy man-kind, increasingly rely on technological innovations to enjoy wilderness experiences. Ken Cordell and Jerry Stokes provide a perspective from the Forest Service on the social value of wilderness. Other topics in this issue include:

  • Wilderness in the 21st Century
  • Meanings of Wilderness
