Description
This accessible survey of Wisconsin geography is sure to delight scholars, students, and enthusiasts alike. A beautiful array of nearly 250 photographs and easy-to-read maps illustrate key geographical concepts and structures, such as:
  • physical features: bedrock geology, glaciation, landforms, soils, climate, and vegetation 
  • cultural landscapes: population density, ethnic populations, demographics, and political affiliations
  • economic activity: agriculture, forestry, mining, manufacturing, transportation, recreation, and tourism
Aware that geography is shaped as much by settlement patterns and people as by geology and weather, John A. Cross and Kazimierz J. Zaniewski have created an up-to-date and authoritative overview of the Dairy State's lands and life. The Geography of Wisconsin will remain a valuable reference for decades to come.
