Engineering Mountain Landscapes PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Engineering Mountain Landscapes free pdf Humans have occupied mountain environments and relied on mountain resources since the terminal Pleistocene. Their continuous interaction with the land from generation to generation has left material imprints ranging from anthropogenic fires to vision quest sites. The diverse case studies presented in this collection explore the material record of North American mountain dwellers and habitual users of high-elevation resources in terms of social investment-the intergenerational commitment of a group to a particular landscape. Contributors look creatively at the significance of social investment and its material and nonmaterial consequences, addressing landscape engineering at different times using diverse, theoretical standpoints and archaeological, historical, and ethnographic data from varied mountain environments. Engineering Mountain Landscapes offers substantive ideas of broad intellectual interest, specific case studies with state-of-the-art methodology, and a wealth of comparative data.
