This video was then transcribed and adapted to a chapter of a book, Life Liberty Happiness. Udall also agreed to serve as Chairman Emeritus of the VillageTown Stewards.
Tor Udall writes about the importance of human connection and art and music and just living. As such the book is in places unfocussed and meandering; and I cannot believe I am saying this but I think I would have enjoyed this more without the reliance on magical realism to move the plot along.

A Thousand Paper Birds is so so intricate, so very perfectly balanced.

The real story of the settlement of the West was work, not conquest. I like the story about Henry David Thoreau, who, when he was on his death bed, his family sent for a minister. The minister said, 'Henry, have you made your peace with God?' Thoreau said, 'I didn't know we'd quarreled. There's not a single person in Arizona today who would say the Grand Canyon was a mistake
