9780130286307: The Changing Face of America
From Library Journal:

The evolution of the American landscape is documented here by well-known photographers, including Carleton Watkins, Edward Weston, Robert Adams, Margaret Bourke-White, Walker Evans, and some less familiar names. Chapters organize images into landscape topics--natural wonders, open space, farms, sprawl, and highways and byways--and some juxtaposed images (such as two panoramic views of San Francisco) show "then-and-now" views, with a hundred years of "progress" in between. Captions provide information on photographer, date, and the source of each image. Though Jones's brief, journalistic chapter essays are openly biased against development, the images make a far more eloquent case for environmental protection than does the prose. Ironically, some of the most hauntingly beautiful images are of industrial landscapes. This is a competent anthology of well-reproduced photos that addresses interests and issues beyond the subject of fine-art photography. For both general and specialized collections.
