This storyboard, "Technology Only-Life" Represents how Stegner states that if the "Forests are turned into comic books and plastic cigarette cases; if we drive the few remaining members of the wild species into zoos or to extinction; if we pollute the last clear air and dirty the last clean streams and push our paved roads through the last of the silence, so that never again will Americans be free in their own country from the noise, the exhausts, the stinks of human and automotive waste. And so that never again can we have the chance to see ourselves single, separate, vertical and individual in the world, part of the environment of trees and rocks and soil, brother to the other animals, part of the natural world and competent to belong in it. Without any remaining wilderness we are committed wholly, without chance for even momentary reflection and rest, to a headlong drive into our technological termite-life." This shows that it is important to keep the wilderness preserved, otherwise, humanity will not be connected with the wilderness.
This storyboard, "Spiritual Loss" represents how Stegner states that "Just as surely as it has brought us increased comfort and more material goods, it has brought us spiritual losses, and it threatens now to become the Frankenstein that will destroy us." This shows that if we destroy the wilderness, we will have to cope with spiritual losses of the land that once was.
This storyboard, "Lack of Nature Preserve" represents how Stegner states that, "It is as good a place as any for the wilderness experience to happen; the vanishing prairie is as worth preserving for the wilderness idea as the alpine forests." This shows that when the wilderness is gone, everything else we have will too.
