Title: The Great Plains
Description: USA: University of Nebraska Press, 1981. 4th PRINTING OF FIRST BISON EDITION. Paperback. 13.5x20cm. Facsimile reprint of 1931 edition. "This classic description of the interaction between the vast central plains of America and the people who lived there has, since its first publication in 1931, been one of the most influential, widely known, and controversial works in western history. Arguing that " the Great Plains environment.constitutes a geographic unity whose influences have been so powerful as to put a characteristic mark upon everything that survives within its borders," Webb singles out the revolver, barbed wire, and the windmill as evidence of the "new phase of Aryan civilization" required for settlement of that arid, treeless region." Carefully read if at all, front cover lifting at fore edge (not creased), negligible surface imperfection to base of spine where small sticker removed, erased old pencilled price faintly visible on half title page. Content clean and crisp.. Very Good .
