Abstract

Most environmental historians are acquainted with Farrar and Rinehart's Rivers of America book series, but few know much about its genesis and context. This essay examines the six works edited by the series founder, Constance Lindsay Skinner, and argues that these books shed light on interwar environmental thought and suggest that environmental history, at least in its public form, is not as new as many historians in the field have supposed.
