Note Includes bibliographical references and index
""A model compilation It not only takes the analytical measure of the field of American environmental history, it forthrightly blazes trails for the field in the future." William Deverell, Director, Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West" ""A fantastic guide to environmental history that will change how you think about the past." Ted Steinberg, Case Western Reserve University" ""This superb volume, a collaboration of established scholars and rising stars, is now the essential guide to the expanding field of environmental history." Elliott West, University of Arkansas" "A Companion to American Environmental History gathers together a comprehensive collection of over 30 essays that examine the evolving and diverse field of American environmental history, and not only presents a state-of-the-field as it stands, but also expands the current scholarship. With contributions from the founders of this unique branch of history, and the work of innovative young scholars, this Companion presents a bold vision for the future of environmental history, as well as a critical appreciation of its growth and development. The essays in this volume are presented in five parts, covering a diverse set of topics that range from American Indian environmental relations, oceans, and food, to borders, culture, and identity. Combining a complete historiography with the most recent research and trends, the Companion pushes the existing boundaries of the field and encourages new directions of study."--BOOK JACKET
