" What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected."
- Sealth, Chief of the Duwamish, Suquamish, and allied Indian tribes in a letter to President Franklin Pierce in 1854 (13).

I would also like to thank Bald Mountain Air and especially Jeanne and, my guide, Gary Porter for taking such great care of me on this adventure and for showing me this pristine place on the planet.
