Rate this:
First published in 1939 and never before available in a paperback edition, this remarkable compendium of Nebraskiana includes chapters on the state's history, natural setting, flora and fauna, Indians, government, agriculture and industry, ethnic groups, folklore, architecture, art, and literature. Far more than a tour guide, it is replete with all manner of colorful and unusual sidelights on Nebraska places and people, the kind of information not readily accessible outside of archives.

Tom Allan, veteran roving reporter for the Omaha World Herald , has written a new introduction which bridged the years between 1939 and 1979 an reveals some of his own off-the-beaten-path discoveries.

Rewarding reading for the armchair traveler and an indispensable companion for the tourist, Nebraska: A Guide to the Cornhusker State will delight and inform all those interested in Nebraska and the Great Plains region.
