Environment and Region in the American West
Environment and Region in the American West places the concept of regional environments at the center of the conversation by exploring the variety of environments in the American West through regional dimensions. The concept of region can be defined geopolitically, ecologically, bioregionally, culturally, economically, and via a variety of different dimensions that describe and frame the specific physical and social conditions that exist on the ground in any particular place. The American West, broadly construed, contains a multitude of regions, such as the Rocky Mountains, Great Plains, Corn Belt, Sand Hills, Central Valley, and Silicon Valley. The series encourages works that orient readers to these places and explore their dynamic histories by exploring trends and patterns, particular experiences of individuals, and unique features that help to define and explain these places today.
