The degree of correlation of response to each statement with wildernism scores is also indicated by the presence of a gamma statistic.

Characteristics of Wilderness-Purists When we related the wildernism attitude scores to the background characteristics of the respondents, we found the following trends. The more wilderness-purist (wilder- nist) users were more likely to have been raised in urban areas, were highly educated, had more close friends who also participated in wilderness-type recreation, and were more likely to belong to one or more

About 35 percent of the respondents regarded second-growth timber as inferior to virgin forest in recreational value. Strong wil- dernists were especially likely to hold this view. But, about half of the respondents rejected the idea that second-growth timber must always

Summary We undertook this study to find out what kinds of persons visit wilderness in the North- west, what values and codes of behavior they associate with wilderness use, and how they feel about certain policies that might be used in the management of such areas. The study is based on the response of 1,350 persons to an eight-page questionnaire that was sent to a random sample of visitors recorded during 1965
