Site one, which was on the North side of the road, was conducted on a dry hillside slope that was clear of trees and faced the sun all day. This site has soil that was a mixture of red clay and sandy dirt which was thinner due to erosion as well as causing faster run off. Land here resembled a pasture that had been overgrazed and never a chance to recover. Site two at Cox Lake was more of a flat prairie grassland (Southside of road), which doesn't face all day full sun. The soil here was similar in composition with the hillside except the grasses were more plentiful on the flatland.
Jeanne and her family are struggling dealing with Manzanar. The camp is not physically ready to be lived in. Cramped living conditions, poor food, unfinished rooms, and dust that enters through any crack. This was diminishing the Wakasuki family, but the birth of the first grandchild brings the family as one. Racism is the major theme in this book.
Today I set off on a new adventure threw Canada and this stop is going to be located on Canada’s taiga plains where I can enjoy the beauty of the free animals, the nice temperature ranging from 7 to 15 degrees C.

I saw a lot of Wood Buffalo, Wood Bison, and Sandhill crane and to our surprise we saw bears.
Long shot of the Amish standing in a line slowly walking up the hill makes the audience to think that as if they came from the centre of earth, which contributes to the idea that they are peaceful, natural and belongs to the rural land, standing in a line and wearing the same styled and coloured clothing shows conformity and unity in their community. Furthermore, the plain black costuming of the Amish and the music, which can also be described as haunting,

Maria Santos Professor Ucci English 101-College Writing October 17, 2012 Christina’s World Andrew Wyeth’s picture “Christina’s World” is a beautiful landscape of tall grass among a gray gloomy sky. The painting reveals a cloudy day and the author’s use of gray colors and shadows is extraordinary. The picture depicts a house in the distance, in the middle of an open field with its front facing the viewer, it is gray in color and it seems to be an older rural style home with a wire fence surrounding the front it. I would describe it as an older colonial style house. In the picture Wyeth painted every blade of grass, the grass closer to the home seems to be mowed and more yellow in color, while the grass further away from the home is taller and greener.
Doing this project has opened my eyes up to a county in Pennsylvania called Armstrong County. I had never even heard of the name, let alone know what kinds of things are there. I noticed that the county has a lot of nature sittings. That is the main reason why I choose this county. It looked very alive with all the colorful leaves.

With so many foreclosures on houses, many americans were either homeless, or had bought a cheap apartment to keep them from being homeless. Because of the recession, and bad economic, many Americans have no jobs, and barely have a house.
The reason the National Graphic Channel helped was because while I was watching it I saw a dessert that was full of dry grass which looked like wheat and animals running around which I thought was very cool and from that it gave me an idea to do wheat. After realizing what crop to grow I figured out the best place to grow wheat's is in Saskatchewan, While researching about wheat's I realized that they are one of the most important crops used as of today. Which got me more interested in researching about Wheat's and cause I love the Saskatchewan roughriders I wanted to do it there even more. If I had a farm there I would definitely go watch
These roots grew in dense tangled clumps that were difficult to cut. The “Sod Buster” was invented in 1830 by John Deere and was adopted by many homesteaders very quickly. The homesteaders planted the crops of maize and wheat that they brought with them from the Eastern states. These were suited to the mild and damp climate there but not on the Great Plains which means because of having no crops their life on the Plains would be impossible to sustain and also no crops meant there wasn’t any food for the homesteaders. Cattle and buffalo were also a problem.
