"As children of nature, we Indians have always looked upon the concentration of population as the prolific mother of all evils, moral no less than physical, . . . [for] the loss of spiritual power is inseparable from too close contact with one's fellow humans. All who have lived much out of doors, whether Indian or otherwise, know that there is a magnetic and powerful force that accumulates in solitude but is quickly dissipated by life in a crowd."
