...Nature Introduction       Wilderness is a word that is very difficult to define, especially since there is no universally accepted meaning of the term. Initially it is applied to nature as something that is out of the reach of human beings. It has been extended to include wildlife. Sometimes the term is also used to define places that are deserted with lack of cultivation. The most modern perception of the word ‘wilderness’ lies in the depiction of areas, which confuse people. It represents mystery. The word can be said to have a dual meaning. On one hand it is inhospitable and threatening and on the other it represents beauty that is capable of providing solace to human eye... Wilderness Place and...
