9780049170100 The nature and evolution of the cultural landscape of North America are revealed with authority in this book. The editor has drawn together carefully integrated contributions from a team of scholars of landscape - geographers, historians, archaeologists and others - to present a readable and fully illustrated account of a widely appealing subject. Ranging from an introduction to the physical environment of the continent, through the impact of the Asian peoples who crossed the Bering Straits 15,000 years ago to "Landscapes Redesigned for the Automobile", the chapters cover the richness of landscape history and evolution, with all its ethnic, ecological, economic, aesthetic and political dimensions. The book is sure to enjoy a wide readership, not least among students following courses within schools of geography, history, or landscape arthitecture.
