Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Extending entirely across the state of Alabama for about 20 miles (32 km) south of its northern boundary, and in the middle stretching 60 miles (97 km) farther south, is the Cumberland Plateau, or Tennessee Valley region, broken into broad tablelands by the dissection of rivers. In the northern part of this plateau, west of Jackson county, there are about 5,280,000 square feet (491,000 m2) of level highlands from 700 to 800 feet (240 m) above sea level. South of these highlands, occupying a narrow strip on each side of the Tennessee River, is a country of gentle rolling lowlands varying in elevation from 500 to 800 feet (240 m). To the northeast of these highlands and lowlands is a rugged section with steep mountain-sides, deep narrow coves and valleys, and flat mountain-tops. Its elevations range from 400 to 1,800 feet (550 m).show more
