Midwest Nature Quote of the Week: Oct 23

Some of the best streams of all are the small farmland rivers.  Modest places, rarely spectacular, but lending a measure of freedom and wildness to landscapes that are thoroughly plowed, cowed, and put to cash grain.  In many parts of our Midwest, South and Southeast—rich humid regions that are intensely cultivated—such streams are among best escape routes from the soul-bruising press of modern living.
