The Prairies and the Northern Great Plains Borderland: Themes and Issues from the Interior North America
Randy William Widdis | BIG Research Reports | #69
The Prairies and Northern Great Plains Borderland: Themes and Issues from the Interior of North America attempts to extend our understanding of this little understood borderland region. From a geographical perspective, the Prairie Provinces and the northern Great Plains appears to be the most homogeneous of all the borderland regions, characterized by a physical uniformity in its grassland ecosystem and continental climate; a predominantly rural, resource and agrarian economy; low population density; and geographical isolation from markets. Nevertheless, over time political, economic and cultural forces differentiated the Prairies from the northern Plains and in doing so reconfigured this particular borderland. Seven chapters as well as an introduction (first draft included) and conclusion will be included in the manuscript.
