504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 301-382) and 
520    "Known as the Windy City and the Hog Butcher to the World,
       Chicago has earned a more apt sobriquet-City of Lake and 
       Prairie-with this compelling, innovative, and deeply 
       researched environmental history. Sitting at the 
       southwestern tip of Lake Michigan, one of the largest 
       freshwater bodies in the world, and on the eastern edge of
       the tallgrass prairies that fill much of the North 
       American interior, early residents in the land that 
       Chicago now occupies enjoyed natural advantages, economic 
       opportunities, and global connections over centuries, from
       the Native Americans who first inhabited the region to the
       urban dwellers who built a metropolis in the nineteenth 
       and twentieth centuries. As one millennium ended and a new
       one began, these same features sparked a distinctive 
       Midwestern environmentalism aimed at preserving local 
       ecosystems. Drawing on its contributors' interdisciplinary
       talents, this volume reveals a rich but often troubled 
       landscape shaped by communities of color, workers, and 
       activists as well as complex human relations with industry,
       waterways, animals, and disease"--|cProvided by publisher.
