Abstract:

"In The Niagara Companion, Linda Revie considers how three centuries of fine art depictions and travel narratives were influenced by the earliest European encounters with the waterfall. Even long after Niagara had become a tourist mecca, it was often drawn as a primordial wilderness - a place where civilization vies with wildness, artifice with nature, fear with control, the natural with the mastered. Throughout this history of images and narratives, as humans struggle to control nature, the notion of wildness prevailed."--Jacket.
