The impact of industrialism on North American rural landscapes was quite different. While it supported a bourgeoisie which could set the standards of taste and lifestyle, its effect on rural landscapes was dominated by the progressive and egalitarian ideology of the pioneering yeoman farmer and of the commercial small town (Lemon 1972). And so the landscapes around which any rural idyll could gather were those of the family farm and the productive yet virtuous agrarian economy it sustained. Added to the scale and diversity of North American rural landscapes, this has largely prevented the establishment of any of that sense of an archetypal and universal countryside which is the object of the English rural idyll.
