The fascinating story of how a harsh terrain that resembled modern Antarctica has been transformed gradually into the forests, grasslands, and wetlands we know today.

"One of the best scientific books published in the last ten years."—Ottowa Journal

"A valuable new synthesis of facts and ideas about climate, geography, and life during the past 20,000 years. More important, the book conveys an intimate appreciation of the rich variety of nature through time."—S. David Webb,Science

From Library Journal:

Pielou, a well-known ecologist and author of the The World of Northern Evergreens ( LJ 4/1/88), tells the story of the melting of the glacial ice, the resulting formation of features such as the Great Lakes, and the movement of plants and animals in response to these changes. This nicely written narrative weaves together information from several scientific fields, providing the reader with the big picture. A good book for the layperson, it should appeal to those who enjoyed R. Dale Guthrie's Frozen Fauna of the Mammoth Steppe (Univ. of Chicago Pr., 1990). Recommended especially for libraries in Canada and the northern United States, areas affected most by the great ice sheets.
- Joseph Hannibal, Cleveland Mu seum of Natural History

From Publishers Weekly:

Pielou explains the natural history of the last 20,000 years, showing how the end of the Ice Age affected North America.
