Synopses & Reviews
The focus of this book is on the lifestyles and landscape patterns created by settlers in the countryside around America’s largest cities. An hour’s commute away from busy workdays Americans have created vibrant countryside wonderlands: more through the ideas of how country life should be than how heartland rural life oftentimes has been. In these places exotic animals graze while unfamiliar crops are nurtured by the willing soil. Leisure and pleasure meet, providing sanctuaries from cities and suburbs.
‘The geographically-based case studies incorporated into Being American on the Edge represent the very essence of Goddard’s work. His attention to popular culture – film, magazines, and newspapers – is also handled effectively as well as engagingly. Indeed, it lends essential context to his work. A significant book.” – Michael H. Ebner, professor emeritus of American History, Lake Forest College, and author of Creating Chicago’s North Shore, A Suburban History
