Paragraph of the Week

From Wallace Stegner's The American West as Living Space, via Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild:

It should not be denied...that being footloose has always exhilarated us. It is associated in our minds with escape from history and oppression and law and irksome obligations, with absolute freedom, and the road has always led west.
