Publisher's Summary:
This study examines the ideal of wilderness preservation in the United States from the antebellum era to the first half of the 20th century, showing how the early conception of the wilderness as the place where Indians lived (or should live) gave way to the idealization of uninhabited wilderness. It focuses on specific policies of Indian removal developed at Yosemite, Yellowstone, and Glacier national parks from the early 1870s to the 1930s.
