Epigraph
Believe one who knows. You will find something greater in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.
-- St. Bernard of Clairvaux, 1145
Do you think I was born in the woods to be afraid of an owl?
-- Jonathan Swift, 1738
Dedication
To my wife, Holly.
First words
If it were more ordinary country, less lovely and less hard, maybe the love and outrage would not be so keen.
