The graphics are excellent, including the diagrams

This book is well written. It contains numerous citations and is very readable. The graphics are excellent, including the diagrams. The theme of people interacting with their environment permeates the book. Landscape morphology and its impact on fisheries, water quality and habitat for native flora and fauna comprises a parallel theme to the main theme of soil erosion because of land use practices (1850-1930) and the subsequent mitigation of such impacts (1930-present). I also found the inclusion of landscape management practices by the American Indians, most notably their use of fire, to be informative and provides a richer context for evaluating past and present land use policies and their outcomes.

A fascinating study of how farming techniques almost destroyed but ultimately rejuvenated the fabulous landscape of the Mississippi Hill Country. Packed with some great historical photos of massive erosion and sedimentation from the early twentieth century.

Excellent textbook as a geography major in agricultural sustainability I can say it focused on many key points of soils and weather phenomena
