"A landscape is both the world we know, the source of information for all our writing, as well as a specific site in the natural world, singled out for its beauty or significance. Understanding the relationship between the landscapes of personal experience and those of a global community is part of the process of learning to respond to the land as human environment. Reading the Landscape serves as both a composition textbook and a reader: each chapter introduces the student to stages of the writing process, beginning with techniques for invention and moving toward editing of the final draft. Students read and practice with various rhetorical modes, moving from relatively simple narration and description to more complex argumentation and research."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall; Signed by Author
