McClung starts his book with a terrific insight about LA, California and even a strain of American mythology. Los Angeles is viewed as both arcadian, a paradise found, and utopian, a paradise created. For example, the natural beauty of the Los Angeles basin: the beaches, ocean, valleys with rich soil backed up against soaring snow capped peaks gleaming in the winter sunlight support the arcadian view. My biggest knock on "Landscapes of Desire" is that it doesn't take its initial idea about utopian and arcadian ideals far enough. He simply lays them out and then uses them to organize his illustrations but I think he could have done more.

by William Alexander McClung (Author). William McClung's fascinating essay, supported at every point by wonderful illustrations, shows that Anglo settlers and developers wanted nothing more than to make sense of their surroundings, but that their two dominant paradigms were at war with each other.
