"If we love nature, stay away from it." p.201
"America seemed on a path to widespread Walden living, where everyone could be surrounded by greenery, but somewhere along that road, something went environmentally wrong. The dream of garden living envisioned by ruskin and Wordsworth and designed by Howard and Olmsted turned out to be an ecological nightmare.
