“[Thomas Moran and the Surveying of the American West]
significantly enlarges our understanding of how the West was imaged, imagined, and marketed.”—Journal of the West
“By elucidating how his works were part of the larger enterprise of developing and settling the American West, Kinsey contributes a great deal to scholarship on Thomas Moran. . . . Kinsey's book offers the reader valuable insights into the art of Moran, the visual efforts of the Great Surveys, and the complex association of surrounding networks.”—Winterthur Portfolio
