"Darwin’s knowledge of the workings of nature, his historical perspective, and his various writings earned him a large following among near-by and national conservationists.

If Darwin were alive today, in our world of instant communication and everyday convenience, I am confident that he and Eileen would still choose to live in Shaver Hollow in their 1845 log house located at the end of a narrow, ungraded mile of bumpy road from a chained gate and their rural mailbox."
