Publisher Comments:

Winner of the Francis Parkman Prize

Changes in the Land offers an original and persuasive interpretation of the changing circumstances in New England's plant and animal communities that occurred with the shift from Indian to European dominance. With the tools of both historian and ecologist, Cronon constructs an interdisciplinary analysis of how the land and the people influenced one another, and how that complex web of relationships shaped New England's communities.

About the Author

William Cronon is the Frederick Jackson Turner Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His book Nature's Metropolis: Chicago and the Great West won the Bancroft Prize in 1992.

Changes in the Land offers a unique view on early American history during the time when the first settlers were arriving. Although it reads more like a textbook, it contains an enormous amount of facts based mainly on cultural conflict that occurred between the settlers and natives and "virgin" land.

I would recommend this book as more of a resource reference because of its strange organization and text book manner. If you are in need of information regarding early settlers and their adaptation to their environment this book is for you.
