American Prairie (97) More files... by Jim Brandenburg
Wind rippling through a vast grassland; a thundering herd of bison; an endless carpet of multi-colored blossoms swaying in the breeze - these are enduring symbols of the North American prairie. Today only scatttered patches remain of a sea of tall and short grass prairie that once stretched across the Great Plains from Texas to Saskatchewan. Jim Brandenburg shares his vision of the ecosystem Walt Whitman called 'North America's characteristic landscape.'
