Sharing Mountains Without Handrails 1/3

Mountains Without Handrails by Joseph L. Sax (1980) was published the year I was born. I want to introduce the material to anyone who hasn’t read it or has let it sit on the shelf since the eighties. I’ll summarize the introduction chapters one and two in this post.

What Wilderness Means to Me

Wilderness Legal Boundary Sign

My first encounters with wilderness on a professoional level happened mostly by accident.  As an attorney at the US Department of Justice, I litigated some cases involving some wilderness areas.  Later on, as a professor early in my career, I was invited to speak at the Carhart Center on wilderness management issues and how the courts have treated those issues in litigation.
