      Walter Prescott Webb’s The Great Plains takes a topical approach and study of the effect that the Great Plains had on those who attempted to settle it. The thesis of the book is to show how, “the Great Plains have bent and molded Anglo-American life, have destroyed traditions, and have influenced institutions in a most singular manner” (8)/5(20). Grasslands (including rangelands, pasturelands, and haylands) are the principal land resource types in the Great Plains, composing more than 50% of the land surface area. The major use of the region's grasslands is livestock grazing. The beef cattle industry is prominent in the Great Plains, making up more than 50% of the U.S. beef cow inventory.
