Abstract

This article examines the development of Henry David Thoreau's theology of the wild through his engagement with American Indians. Thoreau believed that for peoples' souls to survive being cut off physically from wilderness, they must cultivate this wilderness within–a feat they must learn–and appropriate–from indigenous peoples.
