Walking with Muir across Yosemite by Thomas R Vale( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can today's visitor to Yosemite National Park still find what John Muir encountered a century ago? Thomas and Geraldine Vale retrace Muir's path, based upon journals of his first summer in the Sierra Nevada Mountains." "Illustrated with drawings by Muir and photographs and drawings by the Vales, Walking with Muir across Yosemite shows that current visitors to Yosemite can still find much of the solitude and wildness Muir experienced. The Vales suggest, however, that a national parks policy promoting nature study could encourage a more profound interaction between humans and the natural world."--BOOK JACKET
The American wilderness : reflections on nature protection in the United States by Thomas R Vale( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interpretations of wild nature and wilderness are particularly diverse in the American mind, given our history, our collective economic success, and our diverse social and cultural mix. Although the meanings we attribute to nature reflect our different views of the role humans should play in the natural world, there remains a divide between how we embrace protected landscapes and how we consider natural landscapes, or nature itself. Thomas Vale explores this phenomenon in The American Wilderness: Reflections on Nature Protection in the United States. In his examination of protected landscapes at all scales, from the wooded corners of a city park and the local reserve of wetland, to the vast wilderness of the Everglades and Okeefenokee, to Central Park and Yosemite, Vale argues that nature protection is an act of place-creation, an act that necessarily links humans to nature and depends on a diverse array of human interactions."--Jacket

Plants and People: Vegetation Change in North America. Resource Publications in Geography by Thomas R Vale( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

General questions of vegetation change and the relationship between natural and human causes of plant disturbance are examined. The themes presented were treated by the author in a semester-long, college-level geography course. The book might be used as an outline for professors wishing to develop such a course, as a text for students, or as a supplemental reference for a more general course in biogeography or related fields. There are six chapters. Chapter 1 examines factors influencing vegetation and disturbance as a vegetation factor. Vegetation change is the focus of the second chapter. Chapter 3 discusses human impacts on vegetation, looking at changes in fire regimes, livestock grazing, logging, trampling, off-road vehicles, air pollution, construction activity, altered biota, abandonment of agricultural land, and purposeful manipulation. The effects of altered vegetation on environmental systems are examined in the fourth chapter. Historical and ecological sources for studying vegetation change are dealt with in chapter 5. The concluding chapter discusses vegetation change and human purpose. A bibliography is included. (Rm)
