Bounded People, Boundless Lands: Envisioning a New Land Ethic
Eric T. Freyfogle
Throughout the book Eric Freyfogle uses examples of poems, fictional stories, and true stories to strengthen his view of the land, and land ethics. One such example is that of the poem by Robert Frost called “Mending Wall” where the phrase “Good fences make good neighbors” came from. Freyfogle uses this poem as a precedence throughout the book, making reference to it, and

inspiring and taught me a lot about what goes on in the rest of the country that I had no idea about, and about the past and what has gone on with laws and regulations about the land.
Overall I really liked the book, and thought that he made a lot of good points and gave hard evidence of how we might change the way America, and it’s land is thought about and treated.
