Reel Nature: America’s Romance with Wildlife on Film (Weyerhaeuser Environmental Classics)
Description Product Description Winner of the History of Science Society’s Watson Davis and Helen Miles Davis Prize in the History of Science.
From the early exploits of Teddy Roosevelt in Africa to blockbuster films such as March of the Penguins, Gregg Mitman’s Reel Nature reveals how changing values, scientific developments, and new technologies have come to shape American encounters with wildlife on and off the big screen.
Whether crafted to elicit thrills or to educate audiences about the real-life drama of threatened wildlife, nature films then and now have had an enormous impact on how Americans see, think about, consume, and struggle to protect animals across the globe.
Review “Mitman’s research, nuanced and satisfying, contributes to both film theory and ecocritical theory and explores the ways in which they should not be separated.”―Stephanie Lyells, Journal of Ecocriticism, January 2012
“How the wildlife documentary got from Roosevelt to Disneyworld is a story of charlatans, hucksters, crooks, imaginative cameramen, brilliant zoology and shameless appeal to the sex and violence of life as cinema audiences have grown to expect it to be.
Mitman . . . tells the American version of this lurid celluloid safari.”―Tim Radford, The Guardian
“American wildlife film-makers . . . abandoned truth in favor of more alluring lode stars. Reel Nature is an admirable history of why they did so. . . . Very well told.”―Stephen Mills, Times Literary Supplement
