Quote of the Day

© Bryan Schutmaat
Lonesome Dove begins with this epigraph from T.K. Whipple. It seems to sum up my heart for the West, the wilderness, and traveling back in time.

- Joel

"All America lies at the end of the wilderness road, and our past is not a dead past, but still lives in us. Our forefathers had civilization inside themselves, the wild outside. We live in the civilization they created, but within us the wilderness still lingers. What they dreamed, we live, and what they lived, we dream."

- T.K. Whipple, Study Out the Land
