1964 wilderness act

The 1964 Wilderness act describes wilderness as an area...
  • "Where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man..."
  • "Which generally appears to have been affected primarily by the forces of nature, with the imprint of man's work substantially unnoticeable..."
  • "Where man himself is a visitor who does not remain..."
  • "Which has an outstanding opportunity for solitude or a primitive and unconfined type of recreation..."
