Hidden Treasure in the Wild

In a bit of rare house cleaning I came across a hand bound 300 page manuscript I had forgotten existed. It later was culled for the considerably shorter, Wilderness and the Heart, University of Georgia Press. This predecessor manuscript was presented to Henry Bugbee at a mid-morning gathering in Missoula, Montana, in April 1997, over 20 years ago. I must say I was moved by the praising words of presentation — words I have no recollection writing or uttering. Nor do I remember the size of the room or its attentive inhabitants. In any case, here’s what the cover and first two pages look like.

I find the list of contributors impressive for their number and variety.

Here’s Quine’s introductory contribution.  Vintage Quine:
