QOTD: Horace Kephart on the Wild Outdoors

“To him in whom the primitive virtues of courage, energy and love of adventure have not been slapped, there is scarce a joy comparable to that of roaming at will through wild region, viewing the glories of the unspoiled earth and feeling the inexpressible thrill of manliness sore tested by privation and hazard but armed and undismayed”.

—Horace Kephart, Camping and Woodcraft, 1917
