Discovering the Vernacular Landscape (First Edition)
by John Brinckerhoff Jackson
Publisher's Description
Jackson views features of the landscape from historical and contemporary perspectives. In addition to the ordered political aspects of landscape such as roads, boundaries and fields, he identifies an equally important vernacular tradition linked with custom, adaptation and mobility. Different chapters focus on America's agrophilia (love of horizontal spaces), stone as a building material, the mobile home, military landscape, and the origin of parks.
