"From the introduction by Bill Meadows, president, The Wilderness Society: "In the wilderness, there is unparalleled beauty. This beauty helps us maintain a vital sense of wonder and reverence for the natural world, keys to stimulating a deeper commitment to stewardship of our earth, her people, and all living things. Through his photography, Clyde challenges us to look at the natural world with a fresh perspective, not as detached observers, but as intimate, spiritually engaged participants. He magnifies reality in ways that encourage us to view nature with awe and respect. By demonstrating the unity of all beautiful, natural places, his artwork provides a compelling illustration of why wilderness should be preserved and sustained by linking natural lands together in a unified whole." "Florida's interior is not easily accessible, but through Clyde's images the heart and soul of Florida have been shown to thousands of people, changing the very essence of the way people view Florida's environment. Clyde's images produce a unique feeling of reverence toward the land in which we live. His images revive our desire to carry on, with vigor, the fight to save our 'places of spiritual sanctuary.' " - Nathaniel Reed, former Assistant Secretary of the Interior"
