    The subjectivity of freedom makes it hard to define, but by definition, freedom is the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action.

However, the way Stegner goes about this main point in Living on Our Principle ends up being a little different. It seems that Stegner is trying to get his point across with the use of many outside sources. Most notably, Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac, which…

What I mean by that is that the artifacts show that the people of Dickson Mounds came from being farmers and…
