From the dustjacket:
More than 50 years ago, Walt Disney utterly transformed the concept of outdoor entertainment venues from tawdry carnivals and seedy amusement piers into an entirely new destination that would come into common vernacular as the "theme park."
Lavishly illustrated throughout with rare and never-before-seen artwork and photographs, Walt Disney's Imagineering Legends and the Genesis of the Disney Theme Park will further enrich the reader's appreciation of the exceptional talent behind the creation of Disneyland and its ongoing evolution.
Jeff Kurtti is the author of twenty books, a writer-director of award-winning documentaries, and a respected public speaker, host, and panel moderator.
