About this product
- DescriptionAs an international ecotourism destination, Yosemite National Park welcomes millions of climbers, sightseers, and other visitors from around the world annually, all of whom are afforded dramatic experiences of the natural world. This original and cross-disciplinary book offers an ethgraphic and performative study of Yosemite visitors in order to understand human connection with and within natural landscapes. By grounding a vel eco-semiotic analysis in the lived reality of parkgoers, it forges surprising connections, assembling a collective account that will be of interest to disciplines ranging from performance studies to cultural geography.
