Water is Our Keeper

Man’s history is woven into waterways, for not only
did he live beside them, but he used them as highways
for hunting, exploration, and trade.
Water assured his welfare, its absence meant
migration or death, its constancy nourished his spirit.
A mountain, a desert, or a great forest might serve
his need of strength, but water reflects his inner needs.

-Sigurd F. Olson
