Love of place

I'm trying to find a particular quote from Ursula le Guin's "Left Hand of Darkness".

The passage is about the meaning of love of place. It's something like, "What is love of place? Is it familiarity with the trees, rocks, etc. of the land? And does the love of place stop with its border?" I've googled quotes from her, downloaded a PDF off a rapidshare-type site (I do own a copy of the book, so I don't think there's ethical concerns there) and searched for what I think are the keywords of the passage, and have not managed to find it. Does anyone know the passage, or even the page of the book it appears in?
