For this assignment we are asked mainly to answer the questions given to use over the reading material as a measure of accounting for each student completing the reading In class we have briefly discussed these articles to the extent to figure out that most saw the article written by Walter Webb as being less than factual from a Historical context On top of the use of unpoltically excepted terminology Webbs use of out dated opinions and knowledge leads to reader to conclude that his particular piece should be taken with a grain of salt and then compare to what factual knowledge the article by Licht has to sayQuestion number asks us to describe our definition of the region we consider to be the Great Plains In my opinion the only thing that Webb uses that I consider being valed is his use of the 98-degree longitude line as a bases to put a general place on the Great Plains However the boundaries are what is primarily the problem of discussion I think the Great Plains Extends east to basically the Mississippi river North into Canada and west into Kansas dying off just before Colorado As for a map to show this I would say that the map on pg 31 Would best describe the Great Plains but I would combine the Tall and Short grass prairies For me it makes more sense to describe the Plains in this way because Historically I think it is more accurate then what Webb would have you believe Question two asks if definitions have change over time This Question is answered plain and simple yes Both Historians and Ecologists have argued over the boundaries of the Great Plains for quite some time now No one can seem to agree on what to neither use as a boundary nor can the agree on a type of map to use I guess it all depends on what science you are
