The Place With No Edge (eBook)
An Intimate History Of People, Technology, And The Mississippi River Delta
de Adam Mandelman
Sobre o livro
Follows three centuries of human efforts to inhabit and control the lower Mississippi River delta, the vast watery flatlands spreading across much of southern Louisiana. Adam Mandelman finds that people's use of technology to tame unruly nature in the region has produced interdependence with - rather than independence from - the environment.
