Loaded with information about the ecology, natural history (including human history & the effect on the natural). geology, flora and fauna of the North American prairies and the living things in them. It's divided into logical chapters by topic as opposed to geography. A very interesting read in entirety and very helpful if you're looking for specific information.

As an aside, my favorite chapter title, "Where is Here," is the lead chapter in the book; I thought it was the story of my life. The chapter sets the scene and gives some overview of the book.

Prairie is supplemented extensively by maps, bibliography, sketches and quite striking, lovely photographs by (mostly) James R. Page. A book to enjoy and refer to many times. ( )

There are people who think of the prairie as boring, and it is hard not to pity them.
