American Wilderness: A New History

Cover
Michael Lewis
Oxford University Press, 08.03.2007 - 304 Seiten
This collected volume of original essays proposes to address the state of scholarship on the political, cultural, and intellectual history of Americans responses to wilderness from first contact to the present. While not bringing a synthetic narrative to wilderness, the volume will gather competing interpretations of wilderness in historical context.
