Families will love going beyond the beloved bestselling Little House books to discover the whole adventure-filled life of Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867-1957). Content as a farmer's wife in Missouri, one day at age sixty-one Laura put pen to paper and began to write down some of the stories from her youth. She had no idea when she started whether anyone would even want to read her stories. They did--and she became the famous author of the quintessential American saga known and loved by generations of American families: Little House on the Prairie.
From Coastal Wilderness to Fruited Plain is an account of the making of a large part of the American landscape following European settlement. Drawing upon land survey records and early travellers' accounts, Dr Whitney reconstructs the 'virgin' forests and grasslands of the north-eastern and central United States during the pre-settlement period. He then documents successively the clearance and fragmentation of the region's woodlands, the harvest of the forest and its game, the ploughing of the prairies, and the draining of wetlands. The degree to which these activities altered the soil, climate, plant and animal communities, and water cycle are evaluated, and the sustainability of present-day ecosystems is brought into question in this account.
