This week's book is The Natural Heritage of Indiana by Marion T. Jackson. I won this book off of the Indiana University Press Blog and it is a real treasure load of information regarding the natural resources of Indiana.
This book is massive and encompasses just about everything you would need to know about how Indiana's land was formed, age of the land mass, the lakes and wetlands, plants and fauna, animals, and human settlement and impact on the land.
Jackson takes you on a historical journey from the ice age all the way through the present day and into the challenges that face our natural resources tomorrow.
The book is jam-packed full of magnificent pictures and maps supplementing all the facts and historical information. For anyone interested in a book all about Indiana and its natural resources The Natural Heritage of Indiana is a book not to be missed.
