One summer evening in the refuge I sat meditating on a nameless hilltop, looking out at the braided Kongakut River valley and the mountains of the Brooks Range beyond, and found amidst its startling beauty a glimpse of hope and faith in the future of humanity. No matter how industrialized our nation gets, no matter how our resource needs change, I believe we will have the moral courage to keep places like the Arctic Refuge free of development so that future citizens of the world will continue to have the opportunity to meet nature in its wildest form. During my time in the Arctic I learned much about nature from my Native friends, the Gwich'in Athabascan Indians and the Inupiat Eskimos. They shared with me their way of life, their relationship to land and animals. They instilled in me their respect and reverence for nature and their resolve to coexist with the natural world instead of trying to conquer it.
