Land Between Two Rivers: Part 2
A Prairie Conversation (#203)
The remaining acres of black fertile soil of the tallgrass prairies are insignificant compared to those of the inferior hill prairies of northeastern Iowa and the dry prairies near the Loess Hills along the Missouri River. In light of this, viewers are asked the question, "Is there a point below which it is not worth preserving Iowa's prairies?" [43 minutes]
