1.Describe events from Randy Morgenson’s life that influenced his strong devotion to protecting the wilderness of California’s High Sierra range. Identify his specific concerns for protecting the wilderness.
In the vast sierra wilderness, for me, without this class and this chance to read book” last season for extra credit, I will never know about one guy who tried to change people’s idea toward wilderness. Randy Morgenson, from when he was 8 year old, with the existence of his father who love slow life style, he could have the many chance to touch nature. As we know, the experience and acquisition in the young age affects to people when they form their character. I think that Randy’s storong devotion to protecting the wilderness is from his circumstance of childhood. While he was living in the Yosemite valley with family, he used all space around him as a place to learn something. As he was just feeling the flower scent, he realized that how the small flower could bear and survive in harsh environment. I think that like the book says, his father named Dana Morgenson affects to his son greatly. Dana, as giving up his good job as a banker, he was trying to find his romantic life in the nature with his wife. I think this is not easy selection for everyone. In that time, I think that many people might have found their job and life in the city not in the wilderness. Under those circumstance, Randy are spending his teenage life reparing bicycle and helping traveler teaching them to direction near the Yosemite park. In the book, this Randy’s character are depicted that unlike the small-town kid who wants to go and discover big city, Randy wanted to venture deeper and deeper into the wilderness. I think this is great phrase for explaining why Randy had a strong belief to wilderness. While he attended to Arizona state college in Flagstaff after graduationg high school, he couldn't get settle down well in there. because his mind always was in the wilderness.
