Comparison between the Yosemite National Park, where, in 1851, a war began against the indigenous inhabitants, and the Nevada Test Site, where, in 1951, the US Governemnt carried out their nuclear testing programme - two episodes that served to cause great harm to the American landscape in these areas.
The product of a stunningly original and expansive imagination, Savage Dreams ties together the histories of Yosemite National Park and the Nevada Test Site . . . to illuminate the political stakes of how we think about, and act upon, the landscape."--"SF Weekly
