Nature and the American: Three Centuries of Changing Attitudes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hans Huth was for many years Curator of Decorative Arts at the Art Institute of Chicago and a consultant for the U.S. National Park Service.

For this new Bison Book edition, Douglas H. Strong has written an introduction discussing recent developments in the environmental movement and the contribution of Nature and the American to the burgeoning crusade for nature.

Book News Annotation:

**** A reprint (with a new introduction and bibliography) of the 1957 U. of Calif. Press (Berkeley) original edition, which is cited in BCL3. Noted for its breadth and scholarship, this work remains important for the perspective it gives to current environmental conditions and the contemporary preservation movement.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

'A fascinating and charming presentation of our earliest American expressions of appreciation for the natural scene, wild and unmodified by man....an account of the development of this appreciation and its practical application in programs to protect such areas from exploitation and development.'--nature. 'A valuable reference work for the (reader) seeking to balance a history of wars, politics, and heroic explorations with a history of ideas and a growing environmental awareness and conscience. It is an important book.'--Journal of Environmental Education.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [229]-238) and index.
