of Alabama is situated on 1000 acres beside the Black Warrior River in
Tuscaloosa; the city and its environs are home to a population of 125,000,
including 18,775 university students. The mountains of northern Alabama,
the beaches of the Gulf Coast, the New South cities of Atlanta and Birmingham,
are all within a few hours' drive, and the Southern Crescent passenger
train runs from Washington through Atlanta and Tuscaloosa to Old World
New Orleans. The state of Alabama is rife with waterways, dense with forests
of pine, and drenched in a subtropical climate that makes for a nearly
year-round display of flowering plants and trees. Ancient indigenous cultures
have left their imprint on the land as well as the map: it's a twenty
minute drive from Tuscaloosa to the Mississippian-era earthworks in Moundville,
and other sites of archeological interest abound throughout the state.
