It is a subject that to every American ought to be of surpassing interest; ... in the midst of American scenery - it is his own land; its beauty, its magnificence, its sublimity -- all are his; and how undeserving of such a birthright, if he can turn towards it an unobserving eye, an unaffected heart! -Thomas Cole. An Essay On American Scenery.
