<< In Milton Trautman's FISHES OF OHIO, there is a section in the begining
describes Ohio from the early 1700's. Just going back that far was amazing
to read about. How western Ohio contained what was called "The Great Black
Swamp" along the coast of Lake Erie must have been an incredible sight.... a
swamp stretching 120 miles long, and 40 miles wide. Today, onle remnants
remain along the shores of the lake. >>
I'm sure that there were many vanished unique habitats in my home state of
Michigan as well.
