Synopsis
Lying in an area bounded by the Wabash, Ohio, and Mississippi rivers, the Southern Illinois country is rich in history, folklore, scenery, and natural resources. At about the latitude of southern Virginia, and extending from the flat prairie farmland of central Illinois to the rugged Illinois Ozarks, the area is the natural terminal boundary for hundreds of plant species reaching out to all points of the compass. It is also the oldest and most sparsely populated part of Illinois, a region of small towns and independent people, typical of the vast heartland of the U.S.A.

Surveying the area in words and pictures the authors sensitively and appreciatively portray the region s special qualities. An uncommon portrayal of American life in a distinctive region, the book provides a memorable journey both in time and place.
