Land Wilson developed an appreciation for nature as a boy thanks to his parents and naturalist Elizabeth Terwilliger. Having read that viewing Earth from space had a profound effect on a person's sense of responsibility to the health of our planet, Land wanted to share what he learned about the importance of protecting nature. After interviewing three Apollo astronauts, Colonel Frank Borman, Captain Eugene Cernan, and Captain Wally Schirra, Jr., he resolved to share this experience with children. It was then that Sofia's Dream was born.

"In her mind,
Sofia left the world behind.
When she reached the moon in space,
She asked about his gloomy face.
'Now, my friend, that you are here,
I'll show you what it is I fear.
Take a close look at Earth with me,
Then tell me what it is you see.'"
