Summary
"Carleton Watkins was the greatest American photographer of the nineteenth century and the most influential artist of his era. Making the West American examines Carleton Watkins's life and his role in making the West a part of a distant nation from the Civil War period until the end of the nineteenth century. Watkins's work gave America Yosemite and provided the impetus for the national park idea, introduced Eastern scientists to the West, informed American business about investment in the West, insisted that the West's history had a place in America's story, and helped enable the industrial-scale agriculture that has come to dominate the West"--Provided by publisher
