Condition: See description

New York, NY W.W. Norton & Company, 1997. Hardcover First Ed; First Printing indicated. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THE GENERAL EDITOR, Riebsame, by the Director of Cartography, Robb and by the Essayists, Limerick and Wilkinson. First Ed; First Printing indicated. Very Near Fine in Near Fine DJ: Book shows just a hint of shelf wear; the binding is square and secure; text clean. DJ shows very mild rubbing only, else flawless; price unclipped; mylar-protected. NOT a Remainder. NOT a Book-Club Edition. NOT an Ex-Library copy. Folio. 192pp. James J. Robb, Director of Cartography. Essays by Patricia Nelson Limerick and Charles Wilkinson. Photographs by Peter Goin. Hardback with DJ. One of the best introductions to social, economic and environmental trends taking place in the Western United States. The graphs and photos highlight the new trends from water usage to ethic population patterns. The 7 chapters and two essays provide telling examples of how communtities are adapting to the changes (or not adapting in some cases). The work is footnoted to provide jumping off points for more research. Also, I found the quotes that are placed throughout the margins of the text to be extremely insightful. The book shines at showing how the West is moving away from a culture of exploiting natural resources for basic industry and instead exploiting the natural beauty to draw ever increasing numbers of residents and visitors. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THE EDITOR.
