Blake, Peter.  
God's Own Junkyard. The planned deterioration of America's landscape.

Publisher: Holt, Rinehard & Winston [c1964]. "First Edition".
144 p., photos, 26.5 cm. "This is perhaps a rather naîve book. It is based on the assumption that our national purpose, or purposes, are somewhat more than idealistic. It is based on the further assumption that it is not too late for us to learn to see again, and to learn to care again about the physical aspects of our environment. And it is based, finally, on the assumption that ours could be a reasonably civilized society-- if enough of us could be stirred into action. This is, therefore, a muckraking book..." Contents include Lords of the Soil, Improvements and Comforts of Social Life, Thine Alabaster Cities, Townscape, Landscape, Roadscape, Carscape, Skyscape. Paper covers; moderate wear, ink owner name; good. 38369.
