National Geographic soil map not online

About the Sept. 08 National Geographic article “Our Good Earth,” which has a map that identifies the Blackland Prairie through the middle of the United States as one of the most highly fertile soils in the world . . .TTC-35 and the Supercorridor will pave over this valuable resource.

National Geographic has confirmed, “Unfortunately, the map was not included in the online adaptation and is not available electronically.” The map is only in the print edition, on page 92.

You can see the article online at
or by going to
At the top left-hand corner, where it says Current Issue, September 08, click under that on Table of Contents. When that comes up, click on “Our Good Earth,” which is the top featured article.

You can easily send an email letter to the National Geographic editor at
