    William F. Baxter and Aldo Leopold both have very different views as to what it means to be human and where our place in the world is compared to other animals, plants, and the very land itself.

However, Leopold does not hold a similar view to Baxter and instead claims that it is “…an evolutionary possibility and an ecological necessity” to extend our ethical behaviors beyond just our own fellow humans and include all of life and land within…

    exploitative way. This again goes in line with Berry’s idea that us as a human race doesn’t need much, that we could get almost anything from just a local area. Which also goes along the lines of the 100 mile diet that we talked about in class. It is mostly possible to do, and only certain populations would need help from the outside area. Stegner uses a large amount of references throughout the piece, which makes his writings much more enjoyable and more believable. I did have to look many of…

    For my second article, of assignment two, I chose “Disease and Death at Dr. Dickson’s Mounds” by Alan H. Goodman and George J. Armelagos, and the article from the Bradford Foundation I am comparing it to is “The Cochimi Culture on the Baja California Peninsula of Mexico.” I found it fascinating that both articles talked of disease and death but both came from completely opposite reasons. What I mean by that is that the artifacts show that the people of Dickson Mounds came from being farmers and…
