American Placesby Eliot Porter and Wallace Stegner and Page Stegner
Synopses & Reviews
Enjoy a close look at America, with a decidely personal touch, by seasoned observers of the continent's varied human and natural history. The range is wide, from Maine west to the Pacific Northwest and south to Florida, across the Mississippi, the Plains and the Rocky Mountains through the Canyonlands to California.
American Places, a splendid marriage of text and photographs, was a dozen years in the making. It is graced with eighty-nine dazzling color photographs taken especially for the book by Eliot Porter. Conceived as a unique exploration of North America's human and natural history, it has much to say about how the American people and the American land have interacted — how they have shaped one another — what patterns of life, with what chances of continuity, have arisen out of the confrontations between an unformed society and a virgin continent.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 218-222) and index.
