First Along the River is the first concise, accessible, and informative introduction to the U.S. environmental movement that covers the colonial period through 1999. It provides students with a balanced, historical perspective on the history of the environmental movement in relation to major social and political events in U.S. history. The book highlights important people and events, places critical concepts in context, and shows the impact of government, industry, and population on the American landscape. Comprehensive yet brief, First Along the River discusses the religious and philosophical beliefs that shaped Americans' relationship to the environment, traces the origins and development of government regulations that impact Americans' use of natural resources, and shows why popular environmental groups were founded and how they changed over time.In 1961 the estimate of crops lost in California to air pollution was 88 million.5 The Conservative 1950s With the Cold War, McCarthyism, and ...
