Product Overview

A collection of musings by Pulitzer Prize?winning author Wallace Stegner and his son, Page, "American Places" reconciles the many images that embody Americans, America, and the land that made it all possible. BACKCOVER: ?This book is an attempt, by sampling, to say something about how the American people and the American land have interacted, how they have shaped one another; what patterns of life, with what chances of continuity, have arisen out of the confrontations between an unformed society and a virgin continent. Perhaps it is less a book about the American land than some ruminations about the making of America. . . . We are the unfinished product of a long becoming.?
?from "American Places"
?The text by the Stegners is precise, to the point, packed with useful information and infused with that love for our land and its honest workers which is the highest form (perhaps the only form) of patriotism.?
?Edward Abbey
