Nature Transformed: The Environment in American History

Nature Transformed: The Environment in American History explores the relationship between the ways men and women have thought about their surroundings and the ways they have acted toward them. It asks how Native Americans conceptualized nature and saw themselves in it and how they lived and are now living upon the land. It studies the shifts in perception that transformed nature from wilderness to ecosystem and considers how these transformations affected the forests, plains, and deserts of North America. Nature Transformed enables teachers to show their students how the forces that shaped the American landscape also shaped the American past.
