Wetlands of the American Midwest
A Historical Geography of Changing AttitudeseBook - 1997
How people perceive wetlands has always played a crucial role in determining how people act toward them. Hugh Prince examines literary evidence as well as government and scientific documents to uncover the history of changing attitudes toward wetlands in the American Midwest. As attitudes changed, so did scientific research agendas, government policies, and farmers' strategies for managing their land.
