In this collection of exquisite essays, Elizabeth Dodd explores the natural and human history of sites in the American Southwest, the caves of southern France, the Kansas grasslands, and the forests of the Pacific Northwest. In the Mind?s Eye considers the artistic and creative impulses of those who preceded us, making sense of the different ways in which they?and we?express our experiences of landscape in words and images.
