A Wilder Vein

 I haven't read this yet (though I'm sure I will), but I thought Robert McFarlane's foreward to A Wilder Vein summed up so well one of the core reasons I'm so interested in Landscape.

"Repeatedly, these writers return to the idea that cognition is site-specific, or motion-sensitive: that we think differently in different landscapes. And therefore, more radically, that certain thoughts might be possible only in certain places, such that when we lose those places, we are losing kinds of imagination as well."
