From the Publisher. John Brinckerhoff (J. B.) Jackson, a pioneer in the field of landscape studies, here takes us on a tour of American landscapes past and present, showing how our surroundings reflect important changes in our culture. Arguing that our urban environment makes us increasingly concerned with time and movement rather than place and permanence, Jackson examines the new vernacular landscape of trailers, parking lots, roads, and shopping malls and traces the development of dwellings in New Mexico from prehistoric Pueblo villages to mobile homes.
