This talk gets to the heart of the crisis today concerning the disappearing living species. It deals with the nature of our interrelationships; how we are all interrelated in indispensable ways. And, this applies to relations among individuals as well as those among species. Part biographical exposé, part call for the restoration and defense of wilderness (and humanity) this talk is an eloquent plea for humans to show both understanding and compassion for all sentient beings in recognition of why we are all here together. Craig’s book, The Wild Horse Conspiracy has served as a basis for legal actions to defend these beautiful free spirits of the West in their natural freedom.
