In its fourth year of publishing, the International Journal of Wilderness
has a goal of providing a conceptual and philosophical base for the value of undisturbed lands. As 1997 Acting Managing Editor Alan
W. Ewert stated in 1997, “What we are really here for is to promote wilderness as a concept of great value to our people and our natural
ecosystems. As a resource that is already scarce and increasingly threatened from a variety of venues. As a place where good things
happen when people and wilderness meet, or where people aren’t even part of the picture.”
In 1998, issues will feature Southern Africa, Latin America, Water Wilderness
Areas. Past issues have included articles exploring wilderness as a tool for personal growth.
