REVIEWS153 There are a few minor flaws in the volume. The Subject Index could be more complete. There are four indices, one for authors, which is of less interest to the student or the reference user than a more thorough Subject Index would be. Also included are the People, Agencies, and Organizations Index and the Place Index. However, when I tried to look up all references to sweet potatoes, they were not listed, nor were other subjects that users might need to find quickly. Another flaw is in the printing of Color Plate 1.14, Land Cover. It looks as if the four forest types, marshes, and water layers were not included. Aside from these minor complaints, North Carolina: People and Environments, second edition, is a tremendous achievement and an important collection of geo- graphic information about our rapidly changing state. It will make a wonderful text for a North Carolina Geography course, which is, of course, one of the authors' intents. If students cannot find just the right bit of information about the state within the 559 pages of text, they can refer to its extensive bibliography. Ecology of a Cracker Childhood. Janisse Ray.
