Title: " GREAT PLAINS EXPERIENCE, THE "
For at least 40 years, scholars have tried to define the exact region known as the Great Plains. Using land formations, climate, vegetation and soil distribution, these scholars have suggested various boundaries that generally include most of North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, the northern panhandle of Texas, part of New Mexico, and the area east of the Rockies in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. Yet, no matter how the Great Plains is defined, the region in large measure has defined the lives of the people who inhabit it. There is a special ecology, a special culture, a special experience on the Great Plains which is explored in this four-lesson series.
