“Children still long to experience the freedom of the day; I am convinced that the inclination survives, even if they aren’t given license to follow it. They want to confront the world on their own terms. They want to discover what ‘wild’ means, and to find it for themselves.”
-Robert Michael Pyle, author of The Thunder Tree
