These days we find people and wild animals everywhere except in the most forbidding habitats, the mountain peaks, the polar ice packs. Another feature of the northern Great Plains was the quiet absence of people and wildlife. The old farmsteads are abandoned, relinquished to the great farming corporations, and the cities and towns are small. Flying across the former prairie our automobile windshield remained almost bug-free, never needing a wash. All relative of course, Lewis would have thought the few people Dan and I saw to be quite a mob and the absence of bugs an unexpected joy.
