The essay "Uncivilized" appears in the September 2014 issue of Outside magazine. To mark the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Wilderness Act of 1964, BL describes a walk in the Three Sisters Wilderness Area, near his home in rural western Oregon, and recalls the successful citizens' campaign to protect three creek drainages there from logging. (The online version of the essay was given the title "The Case for Going Uncivilized.")
