This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Early European descriptions of North America tell about a landscape & a variety of cultures in northeast Florida - a region that had been occupied by native people for more than 10,000 years - that were unlike anything the explorers & settlers had ever encountered. This story of the land & people in that region of the St. Johns River & the Atlantic coast covers 18,000 years - from the Ice Age to the first half of the 20th century. The author describes how natural features transformed & how cultural traditions of native people, as well as Spanish, English, & American colonists, developed in response to opportunities & constraints of the environment. With an unusually broad scope in time, space, & subject matter, he uses the example of northeast Florida to explore the notion of environmental equilibrium, to illustrate the fallacy of a pristine environment, & to show how essential environmental history is to modern ecological planning. Fully illustrated with 25 photographs & 40 maps & written in an accessible style that synthesizes material usually accessible only to specialists, the book will appeal to general readers & policy planners as well as experts. No comparable environmental history of any Florida region exists. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_0813016002
