One thing I’ve had to review while working on first-round edits is grassland terminology (I know this is a thrilling topic and something you’ve been waiting all your lives to learn about, right?).
When I started my research, it all seemd pretty straightforward: a plain was a plain and a praire was a prairie. But here’s where it gets confusing. As I mentioned Wednesday, the Interior Plains are made up of two distinct regions: prairies (wetter, more hilly, tall-grass) and plains (flatter, more arid). This plains region, also known as the Great Plains is — you guessed it — prairie land.
