Abstract

A greater understanding of the problems of adaptation to semi-arid grassland environments by people accustomed to living in woodlands may be achieved by focussing more closely on the origins of these migrants. The 3 hearth areas of colonial American setlement produced 5 regional migration patterns that guided forest man to the Plains. The major direction of population expansion followed a remarkably straight, east-west axis, nearly everywhere perpendicular to the precipitation gradient. -J.Sheail
