Memoir 231
Papers given at a conference on Scientific Exploration in North America to 1930 with topics including Cartography, Oceanic Exploration, Art, Anthropology, Lewis & Clark, & the West. This book adds much to our quest for knowledge of who & where we are by illuminating such themes as the role of maps & mapmaking in defining our national identify, the origins of Western exploration, the cultural clash found in the best-selling account of a 19th-century physician-explorer with Arctic peoples, the role of art in the service of science in bringing these newly discovered places & peoples into the Amer. parlor, & the impact of Mormon farming techniques on John Wesley Powell’s famed 1878 Arid Region Report. Black & white maps & illustrations.
