定冠詞 -The 是不是一定要特定?

下句話出自 Elizabeth Parker, 1907 – CANADIAN ROCKIES – A PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY

“The Canadian Rocky Mountain system, with its unnumbered and unknown natural sanctuaries for generations yet unborn, is a natural asset. In time we ought to become a nation of mountaineers, loving our mountains with the patriot’s passion.”

這段話中 the patriot’s 雖用定冠詞,但怎麼也看不出來他”定”在那?但有點直覺比”a patriot” 及 “patriots’”來得好,但完全說不出理由,如各位老師能指點一二,感謝。

    1. Helen may have to respond to this post for she knows every thing about articles now.

    2. Is this question on the "the" for the "passion" or the "the" for the "patriot"?
