The Prairie

Jim's Photo (Ohio)

The prairie: A tale, by James Fenimore Cooper:

"The meagre herbage of the prairie, promised nothing, in favour of a hard and unyielding soil, over which the wheels of the vehicles rattled as lightly as though they travelled on a beaten road; neither wagons nor beasts making any deeper impression, than to mark that bruised and withered grass, which the cattle plucked from time to time, and as often rejected, as food too sour, for even their hunger to render palatable."
