Wish For A Home in the Prairies

"We have taken into our language the word prairie because when our backwoodmen first reached the land in the Midwest and saw the great natural meadows of long grass-sights unknown to the gloomy forests wherein they had always dwelt-they knew not what to call them, and borrowed the term already in use among French inhabitants." ----Theodore Roosevelt......Prairie is the french word for meadow, but the ultimate root is the Latin word PRATUM (same meaning).
