"Karen’s vignette shows how delving into environmental histories through text

can reveal influences, propagated over time that shape our understanding of

landscape. Often, these concepts, conveyed by words like ‘naturalness’ or ‘wildness’,

are used without the writer necessarily being aware of their complex histories.

But words can also be used deliberately, to change the way we think about

a place." (taken from the text in the book after this section)
