Billie Dyer (Exerpt)

1)If you were to draw a diagonal line down the state of Illinois from Chicago to St. Louis, the halfway point would be somewhere in Logan County. 补补美国地图,common sense部分要恶补!

如果你要从芝加哥到圣路易斯画一条对角线穿过伊利诺斯州,大约中点的地方就是洛根县附近了。

2)The county seat is Lincoln, which prides itself on being the only place named for the Great Emancipator before he became President. 

这个县坐落于林肯镇,是林肯成为总统之前唯一一个以这位伟大的解放者命名的地方,为此林肯市一直引以为豪。

3)Until the elm blight reduced it in a few months to nakedness, it was a pretty late-Victorian and turn-of-the-century town of twelve thousand inhabitants. 

榆枯病开始的几个月内地就一片贫瘠,寸草不生。在这之前,它只是一维多利亚晚期风格的,凸显世纪交替特色的,有着约1万2000个居民的小城镇。

4)It had coal mines but no factories of any size. 

小镇有几座煤矿,但没有工厂。

5)“Downtown” (of Lincoln) was, and still is, the courthouse square and stores that after a block or two in every direction give way to grass and houses. 

(林肯)中心之前是,现在依然是政府办公大楼广场和商场,方圆一到两个街区开外就是绿草地和房子了。

6)Which in turn give way to dark-green or yellowing fields that stretch all the way to the edge of the sky.

接着,更远处是深绿色或者黄灿灿的农田,一直向天际延伸。


7)When Illinois was admitted into the Union there was not a single white man living within the confines of what is now the county line. 

伊利诺斯州加入美国时,洛根县内住着的没有一个白人。

8)That flat farmland was prairie grass, the hunting ground of the Kickapoo Indians

那平坦的农田曾是基可卡普印第安人的牧场和猎场。

9)By 1833, under coercion, the chiefs of all the Illinois Indians had signed treaties ceding their territories to the Untied States. 

1833年,伊利诺斯印第安人的首领们被迫签署割让土地给美国的条约。

10)The treaties stipulated that they were to move their people west of the Mississippi River. 

条约规定他们的人民得向密西西比河以西转移。

11)In my childhood—that is to say, shortly before the First World War —arrowheads were turned up occasionally during spring plowing.

我的童年——也就是一战爆发前不久——春天耕地的时候时不时还会看到有箭镞冒出来。
