An Illustrated HistoryBook - 1995
This work contains fifty-eight short topical chapters on Nebraska history that, when united with the images in this rich gallery of illustrations, present a unique history of the state. Frederick C. Luebke's lifelong commitment to the study of his state informs the book in every detail, as does his concern for clear and readable narrative. The result is a work that every Nebraskan will want to have, read, and enjoy. Familiar illustrations are accompanied by richly detailed explanations of their significance; many others, never published before, cast new light on aspects of our state history. These include the culture of Nebraska's Native Americans, the building of the transcontinental railroad, the hardship endured by European immigrants, and the contribution of African Americans to the state.
