The Day The Great Lakes Drained Away from the Author: Charles Ferguson Barker. A fascinating—and entertaining—cautionary story about what the Great Lakes would look like without water. What’s down there (garbage, lost sunglasses). And what would happen with no water (boats would tip over and be stranded). Each Great Lake is analyzed, with humorous—yet also serious—solutions to the problem. For example, instead of driving for HOURS to get to the other side of Lake Michigan, without water, you could just drive your car across the now-dry lake. The book also serves as inspiration for readers to take care of these beautiful waters, to make sure they are clean and last forever. The book contains NOAA maps that show the underwater features of the lakes, and pages of facts about each one.

The Scrophulariaceae Of Eastern Temperate North America from the Author: Francis Whittier Pennell. This study was originally planned to follow certain regional papers with a similar account of the family Scrophulariaceae (figwort or foxglove family) for the Middle Atlantic & N. Central States. But it soon seemed preferable to include the southern Appalachians & the whole Atlantic Coastal Plain. The flora of the northern states has been profoundly modified by the glacial epoch, & any understanding of the composition & distribution of our northern flora should also consider the adjoining southern territory where vegetation was little or not affected & from which the north was again populated. So, it was decided to include again the South Atlantic & the West Gulf States. The plan of this study is both more thorough & more comprehensive than earlier efforts. Illus.
