About this book

In this comprehensive study of the genre, Don Scheese traces its evolution from the pastoralism evident in the natural history observations of Aristotle and the poetry of Virgil to current American writers. Ample use of illustrations and close readings of figures such as Thoreau, John Muir, and Mary Austin show how each writer's work exemplifies the pastoral tradition and celebrates a 'spirit of place' in the United States.
