American Land and Life Series
Wayne Franklin, series editor
The American Land and Life Series is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of North American cultural and natural regions. Since its establishment in 1990, it has featured two general kinds of books: those which, like Richard Francaviglia’s Hard Places: Reading the Landscape of America’s Historic Mining Districts and John A. Jakle and Keith A. Sculle’s Signs in America:Signatures of Landscape and Place, focus scholarly attention on a neglected sector of the American scene and those which, like Joe C. Truett’s Circling Back: Chronicle of a Texas River Valley and Don Scheese’s Mountains of Memory: A Fire Lookout’s Life in the River of No Return Wilderness, bring a critical perspective to bear on landscape through the exploration of personal experience. Landscape, as the three-dimensional record of human impact on the earth, is the unifying focus of the series. We welcome inquiries from writers eager to promote innovative approaches to understanding, portraying, and writing about space and place in a North American context.
