Quote to Start Your Week: Paul Shepard
Posted by on June 9, 2014

Here’s a quote from American environmentalist and author Paul Shepard in honor of his birthday later this week. He would have turned 89 years old on June 12th.

“The desert sky is encircling, majestic, terrible. In other habitats, the rim of sky above the horizontal is broken or obscured; here, together with the overhead portion, it is infinitely vaster than that of rolling countryside and forest lands.”
