"In scanning prospects in the spatial sense- as landscape panoramas- the eye knows itself to be looking at prospects in the temporal sense- as possibilities for the future, resources to be developed, landscapes to be peopled or repeopled by Europeans." Pratt, Scratches on the Face of the Country, p. 124.
