Inhaltsangabe: Prairies are called a sea of grass―in fact, more than 300 different kids of grass grow on the Great Plains! But you might be surprised to find that there's so much more to this dynamic ecosystem than just grass. Beautiful wildflowers; weather, from blazing heat to pounding hail; lazy rivers and shallow ponds. The countless wonders of prairie grasslands are featured in this beautiful book.
From School Library Journal:
Starred Review. Grade 6–9—Combining personal incidents with expository writing and magnificent full-color photographs, Lynch introduces two ecosystems. In the first book, he describes an encounter with a prairie rattler inches away from his hand and, in the second, he is nearly charged by an elk. However, the real focus of the books is to show the interconnectedness of climate, soil, plants, and animals, and the intricate adaptations of living things to their surroundings. The books are divided into sections that describe specific environments, such as grasslands, wetlands, and badlands in Grasslands and alpine tundra and montane meadows and forests in Mountains. Each book is further subdivided by representative species, giving fascinating facts about the adaptations of specific plants and animals. The author explains the important role of wetlands and forest corridors to the survival of the wildlife of the prairie, and the role of avalanches in making way for nutritious plants for wildlife such as grasses, berry bushes, and alders. "ECO-Facts," "ECO-Alerts," and historical notes about humans in the environment appear throughout. Excellent selections.—Judith V. Lechner, Auburn University, AL
