“This country on either side of Lake Champlain, though it has no name and appears on no map as a single unit, constitutes one of the worlds few great regions, a place more complete, and more full of future promise, than any other spot in the American atlas.” — Bill Mckibben, Wandering Home

“Across the lake it is made whole by matchless eastern wilderness of the Adirondacks. The world contains no finer blend of soil, rock, water, and forest.” — Bill Mckibben, Wandering Home

“There is no other place where the essential skills — cooperation, agriculture, and restraint — offer more possibility for skilled and beautiful inhabitation, for working out the answers to the questions this planet is presenting in this age of ecological pinch and social fray.” — Bill Mckibben, Wandering Home
