Editorial Reviews

Review

"William G. Robbins offers a multilayered story that is as richly textured as the landscape he treats. The book's breadth ranges from the general level of the myths by which people shape and sustain their world view, values, and actions to the ecological specifics of concrete places as the author traces the interaction between Oregon's human and natural worlds. Landscapes of Promise is a well-told narrative in which the older simple, linear, heroic success story gives way to a richer history filled with diversity, complexity, tragedy, and irony". -- Journal of American History

From the Back Cover

Landscapes of Promise is the first comprehensive environmental history of the early years of a state that has long been associated with environmental protection.
