"When we look at a landscape, do we see nature or culture? That question lies at the heart of this book. The author believes that every landscape, forest, river, or mountain, is a work of the mind, a repository of the memories and obsessions of the people who gaze upon it.

He tells of the Nazi cult of the primeval German forest; the play of Christian and pagan myth in Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers; and the duel between a monumental sculptor and a feminist gadfly on the slopes of Mount Rushmore"--Publisher's description.
