After the Ice Age: The Return of Life to Glaciated North America
E.C. Pielou 1991 University of Chicago Press

This book describes how the great North American ice sheet melted ~10,000 years ago, sea levels rose, big mammals that had characterized the last ice age died off, and modern vegetation patterns (such as the northeastern temperate deciduous forest and the midwestern tall-grass prairie) were established.
