    "I get the sentiment Friedman is trying to go for, but from an animist perspective that's simply an indefensible argument. Land, and “land” can come in many different forms, has life energy and we are all bound to it in some way."

    As a fellow animist, I'm with you on this one even though I haven't read this story.

    I loved this story and was pleasantly surprised to see that others seemed to remember it fondly as well. I haven't read it in at least ten years so I was half expecting my fondness to be mostly nostalgia but it sounds like that's not the case. I really wish I knew where my copy is now.

    The B-plot with the Lanatosians and the Skriiti had a really profound impact on me when I first read this trade and caused me to confront my own uncomfortable relationship with "stuff".
