Child of Nature

Brian Duncan on the Missouri River

"What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other.  Travel a thousand miles by train, and you are a brute.  Peddle 500 miles on a bicycle, and you remain basically bourgeois.  Paddle a hundred in a canoe, and you are already a child of nature."
Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau
