      The tallgrass prairie of the early s, a beautiful and seemingly endless landscape of wildflowers and grasses, is now a tiny remnant of its former expanse. As a literary landscape, with much of the American environmental imagination focused on a mainstream notion of more spectacular examples of wild beauty, tallgrass is even more s: 4. The Tallgrass Prairie Preserve, located in Osage County, Oklahoma near Foraker, Oklahoma, is owned and managed by The Nature is protected as the largest tract of remaining tallgrass prairie in the world. The preserve conta acres ( km 2) owned by the Conservancy and another 6, acres (24 km 2) leased in what was the original tallgrass region of the Great Plains.

      This prairie peninsula preceded the invasion of trees, which now make up the forests that dominate eastern North America. Today we refer to the remnants of this prairie peninsula as "heaths" or "barrens." Despite their rarity, ecologists have long debated whether such habitats are truly echoes of our glacial past or products of a more recent. The closing "Prairie Notes" gives brief information about each species featured. McGehee writes, "Much of this natural richness is gone forever, but remnants survive, and many people are working to preserve them and to construct new prairies." This book may help budding naturalists see the value of protecting the lands depicted in its pages.

      If you like the Little House on the Prairie books for going back to a simpler time, you may want to skip this book. However, if you also like the realism of works by Willa Cather, then pick up this juvenile fiction book from Both the beauty and the harshness of the prairie are present in this story of Louisa and her family as the welcome a doctor and his pregnant wife to the Nebraska /5(43). The tallgrass prairie of the early s, a beautiful and seemingly endless landscape of wildflowers and grasses, is now a tiny remnant of its former expanse. As a literary landscape, with much of the American environmental imagination focused on a mainstream notion of more spectacular examples of wild beauty, tallgrass is even more neglected.
