Perhaps Shetterly is suggesting that when set against a backdrop of beautiful, frightening, reliable wilderness, our individual human dramas become less significant than larger, overarching narratives of nature, both human and not.
"In this time of transformation, I learned what is worth saving. Beauty is worth saving. An impractical, beautiful dirt road with a shading canopy can nourish a person's mind and spirit, and people who are fed by the lovely aspects around them can enrich the life of any town." Or any reader.
