Wendell Berrys Native Hill is a wake up call to remind us how selfish and arrogant we as people have lived that has resulted in the slow destruction of the world Berry wants us to understand the connection we have with the world We need to first identify all the many things that we are doing wrong to damage the relationship that we have with the world and then realize that we have a partnership with the world a partnership that will not work if we dont do our part Not only do we depend on nature but nature also depends on itself If we forget this we will continue to commit a slow suicide and destroy both the earth and ourselves Wendell Berry often dreamed of what this country looked like in the beginning before the white people drove their plows into it and initiated the destruction My peoples errors have become the features of my country So much damage has been done over time it is no longer the same land first-comers saw it is now almost impossible to imagine a pristine America and what the shape of the land was Berry wanted to plant in our minds the thought of what was once here and realize that it is gone forever This makes us think of the world in the beginning and the endless possibilities of how beautiful and pure it was Once this is set in our minds we now have a goal of what we want nature and the world to get back to It is too late to get back to the original state that the world was once in but if we keep that mindset during our quest for change and betterment we cant go wrong and things will only improve Before we change the world we have to change our attitudes our priorities and ourselves We have lived by the assumption that what was good for us
