Into the Wild

“We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills, and winding streams with tangled growth, as “wild”. Only to the white man was nature a “wilderness” and only to him was the land “infested” with “wild” animals and “savage” people. To us it was tame. Not until the hairy man from the east came … was it “wild” for us”. – Chief Luther Standing Bear of the Oglala Sioux, 19th Century (emphasis mine).

    I kind of doubt they thought all the beasts were summer camp pals but the point is pretty clear.

    P.S. – I think you mean from and not form?

      Thanks for the correction, Rob.
