From the chapter, "A Bear Hunt in the Smokies." Kephart hears "away down in the rear . . . the snort of a locomotive, one of those cogged wheeled affairs that are especially built for mountain climbing. . . it was despoiling the Tennessee forest. Slowly, but inexorably, a leviathan was crawling into the wilderness and was soon to consume it. All this, I apostrophized, shall be swept away, tree and plant, beast and fish. Fire will blacken the earth; flood will swallow and spew forth the soil. . . soot will arise, and foul gases; the streams will run murky death. Let me not see it!"
