Editorial Review:

Product Description:

Focusing not on nature but on landscape―land shaped by human presence―Jackson invites us to see the everyday places of the American countryside and city. This appealing anthology, illustrated with Jackson’s sketches and photographs, brings together his most famous essays, significant but less well known writings, articles originally published under pseudonyms, a bibliography of his landscape writings, and introductions that place his work in context.

"Jackson remains a model for civil discussion of architecture and the landscape."―Michael Leccese, Architecture

"[This book] contains several wonderful essays in what is best described as domestic anthropology, including a paean to mobile homes and an investigation of the humble garage. Vintage Jackson."―Witold Rybczynski, Lingua Franca

"A large and varied sampler of essays by the late doyen of American cultural geography. . . . Highly recommended for geographers and students of the American scene."―Kirkus Reviews

"Horowitz makes the reader appreciate once again the dignity and affection Jackson brought to garages, supermarkets, cemeteries, or the urban grid."―Patricia Leigh Brown, New York Times
