The European culture area; a systematic geography by Terry G Jordan-Bychkov( Book )

56 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in English and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now in its fourth edition, this textbook has been extensively revised to reflect the sweeping changes the past decade has brought to Europe and to incorporate new research in the field. Hailed for its creativity and intellectual depth, the book for the first time combines lead author Terry Jordan-Bychkov's decades of first-hand experience in Western and Central Europe with Bella Bychkova Jordan's expertise on European Russia to provide a comprehensive view of the region as a whole." "The authors employ a humanistic geographical approach that is ideally suited to facilitate understanding of this ancient, complex culture. Their topical organization, including environment, religion, language, geogenetics, demography, geopolitics, industry, and urban and rural life, offers students a holistic understanding of the diverse European culture area. The final chapter offers a fitting capstone with its unique regional classification that pulls together all the strands of the narrative." "The European Culture Area is the text of choice for courses on the geography of Europe."--Jacket

Once too numerous to attract attention, the log buildings of Texas now stand out for their simple beauty.

This book preserves a legacy of folk architecture that might otherwise have been lost
Trails to Texas : southern roots of western cattle ranching by Terry G Jordan-Bychkov( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A look at the development of open-range cattle ranching which dominated the Great Plains and proliferated in Texas during the end of the nineteenth century
North American cattle-ranching frontiers : origins, diffusion, and differentiation by Terry G Jordan-Bychkov( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cattle ranching in the Old World and New is reinterpreted in this pathbreaking study that both recasts the history of a well-known topic and is also truly original. Jordan begins by tracing how different cattle-raising cultures in Spain, the British Isles, and North Africa helped shape varieties of ranching in the New World. He then delineates the American adaptations of ranching beginning with European expansion into the Caribbean and then considers continued evolution in Mexico, the American South, and the West. By 1850, three distinct ranching cultures existed - Midwestern, Californian, and Texan. Jordan argues that over the next fifty years the Midwestern system triumphed over its two rivals throughout the West. In particular, the role of Texas is depicted as less important than previously thought

The Mountain West : interpreting the folk landscape by Terry G Jordan-Bychkov( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why does the West - both in the United States and Canada - differ from the East? Scholars have put forward two fundamentally different and contradictory explanations: the West as the displaced, archaic, frontier East; and the West as a subculture developed indigenously in response to the demands of a dry, rugged physical environment. In this groundbreaking volume, Terry Jordan and his co-authors look to the log folk buildings of the Mountain West, from New Mexico to Alaska, to explain what makes the West "the West." Arguing that artifacts such as dwellings, barns, and fences can, if correctly interpreted, reveal much about the origins and character of the regional culture, they set forth not only the first comprehensive description and analysis of Western folk architecture but also a systematic explanation of the culture of the West
Siberian village : land and life in the Sakha Republic by Bella Bychkova Jordan( Book )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The village of Djarkhan is in the heart of Russia's Sakha Republic, on the Central Yakut Plain. The world around Djarkhan, with its extreme subarctic climate and intractable permafrost, seems an unlikely place to look for a rich, historic, and exotic efflorescence of human life, and yet this is precisely what the authors found. Their book is an account of how the people of Djarkhan have created their own distinctive place through their unique relationship with a severe and demanding land." "This book traces the way of life of the village's Turkic inhabitants, the Yakuts, from their arrival in the 1600s through czarist times and the Soviet era to the present day. As a native of the village, geographer Bella Bychkova Jordan enjoyed unparalleled access to its people and their stories, myths, humor, problems, and folklore. Viewed through the prism of cultural geography, this material forms the basis of a remarkable portrait of a people wresting a living from the land in one of the coldest and most isolated spots on Earth."--Jacket
The Upland South : the making of an American folk region and landscape by Terry G Jordan-Bychkov( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Upland South esteemed geographer Terry Jordan-Bychkov explores the region's character through an analysis of its traditional cultural landscape. Seen through Jordan-Bychkov's eyes, the built environment and its artifacts reveal much about the nature and distribution of Upland South life and culture: houses, barns, courthouse squares, graveyards, church structures, fences, and the like."--Jacket

The result is a text that maintains its original distinctive style while addressing contemporary issues and situations that students care about, most importantly, the continuing phenomenon of globalization. The Human Mosaic introduces five themes in the opening chapter - culture region, cultural diffusion, cultural ecology, cultural interaction, and cultural landscape - then uses those themes as a framework for the topical chapters that follow. Each theme is applied to a variety of geographical topics: demography, agriculture, the city, religion, language, ethnicity, politics, industry, folk and popular culture.
