in the Woods: Joseph Knowles and the Legacy of Frontier Fakery.
Motavalli. Joseph Knowles was a ex-Navy man, friend of the
Sioux, and onetime hunting guide who stepped nearly naked into the
woods to live off the land. From 1913 to 1916, his dispatches to
the world - alternating accounts of bear clubbing and quiet contemplation,
written in charcoal on pieces of birch bark - set off major newspaper
wars, exploiting readers' fears of modernization. Did Knowles really
survive for months at a time in the untamed wilderness? Part adventure
story, part cultural investigation, Naked in the Woods reveals
a new dimension of our natural history. More
