In his book Satellites in the High Country, journalist and adventurer Jason Mark travels beyond the bright lights and certainties of our cities to seek wildness wherever it survives. These expeditions to the edges of civilization's grid show us that, although our notions of pristine nature may be shattering, the mystery of the wild still exists — and in fact, it is more crucial than ever.

"Jason Mark is a great person to share an adventure with, whether out on the Arctic tundra or on the page. Satellites in the High Country is an engrossing exploration of the ever-evolving definition of what is 'wild' in America which often reveals as much about us as it does about wilderness in the twenty-first century." --Michael Brune, Executive Director, Sierra Club

"In Satellites in the High Country, gripping accounts of outdoor journeys are linked with provocative thinking about the meaning of wildness in an increasingly human-controlled world. Jason Mark ably continues the writing style and themes of legends such as John Muir and Edward Abbey." --Roderick Frazier Nash, author of Wilderness and the American Mind.

Jason Mark's writings on the environment have appeared in The New York Times, TheAtlantic.com, The Nation, and Salon.com, among many other publications. He is the longtime editor of Earth Island Journal, a quarterly magazine, and a co-founder of San Francisco's largest urban farm.
