Nature, the Great Mystery

We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills, the winding streams with tangled growth, as wild. Only to the white man, nature is a wilderness and only to him is it infested with wild animals and savage people. To us it was tame. Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the great mystery.

– Luther Standing Bear (Lakota Sioux)
