Dealing with Thoreau's Indian themes as they are revealed in his "Indian books", this text explains why the Indian for Thoreau is a being of consciousness. It also considers how Thoreau the white man, through the figure of the imagined Indian, comes to an understanding of himself as well as of the Indian. In this study Thoreau's varying but interrelated ideas of the Indian are seen, as they must be, in relation to his vision of discovery of the redeemed self within the context of the natural world.
