No abstract provided – excerpt from the Introduction

This thesis is observational in essence. It is a series of snapshots and portraits of a single piece of land and the things that make that land the way it is. There are separate essays and observations that should stand alone but create a collage of that what is. I approached this thesis as an exercise in learning through exploration. I would walk out with a notepad and sometimes a tape recorder, attempting to capture that which is often left unnoticed by the lazy eye. I then brought these findins back to the world of academia to research their histories and their stories. I consulted others who have molded their lives around the study or management of that land which I hoped to discover.
