A very personal note from WILD’s President Vance Martin, remembering Sir Laurens van der Post closes this issue of the IJW. Vance retells when he first read “Heart of the Hunter,” and the mesmerizing way in which van der Post was able to capture in a story the “sense and texture of wilderness.” Vance continues on to tell of when he first met van der Post, at the 2nd World Wilderness Congress (Australia 1980), and lead to a 20 year working and learning relationship. Other topics in this issue include:

  • New Zealand’s Wilderness
  • Livestock Grazing
  • Adventure Recreation
