This paper looks at how, in the essay, "A Native Hill", the author, Wendell Berry, does more than just acknowledge the question of humanity's place in the natural world as most authors do. Rather, the paper suggests that Berry finds spiritual value and beauty in the land, and ultimately sees the land as a virtual character with which humans interact.

From the Paper:

"He begins the essay by explaining his history within the hill, and even pointedly asserts that all he knows of himself is in relation to the hill. He further states that he and the hill are "inseparable," as is his history and the hill's history. Berry goes on to describe the pain he felt in accepting responsibility for what is wrong with the hill and the confrontation of the "question of what inheritance (he) will leave.""
