Abstract

Raw nature in Biblical tradition was the wilderness into which Adam and Eve were exiled from the Garden of Eden. Uncultivated nature long remained abhorrent to most Americans. I trace the stunning aesthetic reversion from seemly cultivation to modern adoration of untrammeled wilderness, and discuss rewilding’s troublesome ecological and social consequences.
