Summary

How have images of American landscape--Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, the Manhattan skyline--come to be as well known as they are? This book explores the changing face of the American environment, tracing the way in which the present array of forests and farms, parks and highways, cities and suburbs has come about, and how these changes have been reflected upon, painted, and turned into movie images.
