I look at these photographs, I read these essays, and I remember the way the sage country smells and looks in first light. In many ways, the sharpness of senses felt there—the scent of the inland sagebrush sea, particularly, the way sounds such as crane grate, lek boom, raven call carry there, with all else silence: no rig clatter, no highway groan, no sonic engine-roar, only the pulse of the old blue sea awakening each morning—gives me hope. There is work to be done, but where there is love, there is also always its inseparable companion, hope.
— From the epilogue by Rick Bass
