How well do you know your place? Having a sense of place means far more than what makes a location special or unique; rather, it is an abiding connection to place so deep that it defines one's identity, how one thinks, and how one lives in a given landscape. The land and its seasonal round become the teacher, binding a people to a place, shaping habits of mind, and worldviews.
