Summary

The Making of the American Landscape is the definitive text on the topic of the history of American landscapes and the cultural and historical geography of the United States. The volume, organized chronologically, covers the cultural geography of American landscapes from the pre-colonization era through the twentieth century. Each chapter focuses on a particular landscape form, and is written by a specialist on the topic. The second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and includes entirely new chapters on religious landscapes, landscapes of civil society, and corporate consumption venues.
