America is a big country, and the people who settled it were tough and taciturn, determined to turn their dreams into reality.
They had every right to be proud. Although I thought I understood them fairly well, my short trip to the high desert showed me I had a lot to learn. It was as though I had stirred some ancient memory, and entered a dream-like world of wilderness landscapes and legendary heroes.
From time to time, I was almost overwhelmed by powerful emotion. It was a nostalgia for all the important lessons we have forgotten, and for the essential values from which we have strayed.
