Description du livre Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore, MD, 1999. Paperback. État : Fine. 1st. lxiii, 240 pages, illustrations; 20 cm. American Land Classics Ser. First published, 1901. Tight, clean copy. First edition thus. "Since its first appearance in 1901, John C. Van Dyke's The Desert has been considered one of the classics of American nature writing. Before its publication, Americans thought of deserts as scorpion-infested wastelands--with names like Devil's Domain and the Lands That God Forgot. All this changed as The Desert drew attention to the extraordinary beauty that existed in the American West: rolling sand dunes, golden vistas, vibrant sunsets, and remarkable plant and animal life. Van Dyke's book captured the nation's imagination at a time when attitudes about the land were changing. It provided a vocabulary that continues to be used as appreciation of deserts increases and ever greater pressures lead to new calls to protect these fragile environments. With a critical introduction by Peter Wild, this edition offers new insights -- and reveals some surprising truths -- about this legendary author and his best known work. Van Dyke was not, it seems, the 'plaster saint of the desert.' He was not entirely honest with his readers about the journeys that inspired the book, and his natural history includes serious errors. But in this more informed reading, Wild notes, Van Dyke 'emerges as all the more fascinating a writer and his famous book becomes far more intriguing than most readers have imagined through the decades.' As the centennial of its publication approaches and the complex story behind its long success is finally told, this new edition of The Desert reveals an equally complex and dramatic narrative: our changing relationship with the American landscape. 'Van Dyke came at just the right time . . . No sooner had Americans conquered the wilderness, cut down the forests, and slaughtered the buffalo than the romantic nation began sentimentalizing the past, longing for what it had just destroyed.' / John C. Van Dyke was a professor of art history at Rutgers University and the author of many books, including The Open Spaces, The Mountain, and Autobiography. Peter Wild is a professor of English at the University of Arizona. His books include The Secret Life of John C. Van Dyke and Daggett: Life in a Mojave Frontier Town." - Publisher. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. N° de réf. du libraire 076856

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. État : New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Desert: Further Studies in Natural Appearances Familiar facts, you will say. Yes and not unfamiliar the knowledge that with the coming of civilization the grasses and the wild owers perish, the forest falls and its place is taken by brambles, the mountains are blasted in the search for minerals, the plains are broken by the plow and the soil is gradually washed into the rivers. Last of all, when the forests have gone the rains cease falling, the streams dry up, the ground parches and yields no life, and the artificial desert - the desert made by the tramp of human feet - begins to show itself, Yes; everyone must have cast a backward glance and seen Nature s beauties beaten to ashes under the successive marches of civilization. The older portions of the earth show their desolation plainly enough, and the ascending smoke and dust of the ruin have even tainted the air and dimmed the sunlight.
