Looking West

5.0 of 5 stars 5.00  ·  rating details  ·  1 rating  ·  0 reviews
The American West is a region, in the United States, that comes to us in visual terms. The grand landscapes, open vistas, and magisterial views have made the act of looking a defining feature of how we experience the West as an actual place. The author examines a pattern of seeing that stands in contrast to the universally familiar iconography.
Published January 1st 1999 by University of Pennsylvania Press
