    1 thought on “Reel Nature: America's Romance with Wildlife on Film

    1. Right from the start, this book is delving into questions of authenticity, nature, and representation, which is good for me and my interests Capturing animals on film is a challenge, but can we ever do it authentically This author seems skeptical of the possibility, and I agree I look forward to the questions that the rest of the chapters raise.

    2. While the prose is not my favorite and a bit repetitive at times, his subject matter, his way of putting things, and his wit make this book fantastic to read Solid arguments and just a flat out informative book I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
