Film and the American Moral Vision of Nature: Theodore Roosevelt to Walt Disney (Hardback)Ronald Tobias (author)
Hardback Published: 15/06/2011
- Not available
At once a hunter, explorer, naturalist, woodsman, and rancher, Roosevelt was the quintessential frontiersman, a man who believed that only nature could truly test and prove the worth of man. These ideas have since been reinforced by others Jesse Buffalo Jones, Paul Rainey, Martin and Osa Johnson, and Walt Disney. Using Roosevelt as a starting point, filmmaker and scholar Ronald Tobias traces the evolution of American attitudes toward nature, attitudes that remain, to this day, remarkably conflicted, complex, and instilled with dreams of empire. RONALD B. TOBIAS is a Professor of Science and Natural History Filmmaking, in the School of Film and Photography at Montana State University.
