MacCleery recounts how settlers removed much of the American forest for agriculture and commerce during the 19th century. At the beginning of the 20th century, though, demographic changes and an emerging conservation movement helped reduce wildfire and encourage reforestation. Today there is more forestland in the U.S. than there was 75 years ago.

Tells the story of modern architecture through the lives of three men who changed the face of cities in the twentieth century.

Through this triple focus, Peter Blake provides a perspective on the entire range of twentieth-century architecture.

Includes photographs and plans. 430p. Index.
