The demands of human life kept reshaping our attitudes towards the natural environment. In my own experience, I recall the allure of “a cabin in the woods” entrenched in North American culture. It seems like a distant past. Once full of activity, Ontario waterfronts in “cottage country” are now quiet and deprived of children’s laughter. Once busy summer camps are closed, and most lodges farther north are out of business. The sky above is crisscrossed with jet vapor trails, pointing to all-inclusive destinations.
Something is amiss and only time will tell.
