The closest I can come to an IOW example of a story like one of D. A. Henry's is The Tale of the Adopted Daughter, part of Time Enough For Love by R. A. Heinlein. Henry combines the emphasis on self-reliance in Thoreau with the imperative to make a new life in the toughest country imaginable. Henry was a mainstream Christian, but inspired the utopian Turnerite movement of the 1880's described in Sobel.
