Overall, I found “The Meadowlands,” to be quite an educating book. It never really occured to me that such a reason could be clssified as wilderness. But after reading it and comparing it to definitions we had read, I believe we could consider the Meadowlands to be such a reason. With all the unknowns and its kind of out of control state, the region could well suit the definitions. The book also gives for education through a more interesting than textbook outlook. The author captivates us with real life events and stories without failing to address the true facts. Thus keeping the reader captivated and entertained throughout.
One of the articles presented stressed alot on religion. Through out the discourse I was quite displeased by this dependence on explainations through external forces. But at the same time I did agree alot with the psychological aspect of incorporating the wilderness into our daily lives, spent in concrete jungles. It was also not easy for me to accept the harsh truth that it is necessary for areas like the Meadowlands to exist for the efficient functioning of our society and world.
