The state of Nebraska has a rich and varied culture, from the eastern metropolitan cities of Omaha and Lincoln to the ranches of the western Sand Hills. The first atlas of Nebraska published in over thirty years, this collection chronicles the history of the state with more than three hundred original, full-color maps accompanied by extended explanatory text.

Far more than simply the geography of Nebraska, this atlas explores a myriad of subjects from Native Americans to settlement patterns, agricultural ventures to employment, and voting records to crime rates. These detailed and beautifully designed maps convey the significance of the state, capturing the essence of its people and land. This volume promises to be an essential reference tool to enjoy for many years to come.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Want to know where earthquakes have rattled Nebraska since statehood? There's a map for that. How about the paths of tornadoes across the state? The origins of foreign-born Nebraskans? Areas state-designated as short of physicians, dentists and pharmacists? Or how horses have migrated from rural to urban areas? There are maps for all that. In fact, the atlas-the first of Nebraska published in more than three decades-chronicles the history of the state with more than 300 original, detailed and full-color maps accompanied by explanatory text. The coffee-table volume pokes into myriad subjects, including the state's geologic and prehistoric roots, American Indians and the fitful transition from territory to state."-David Hendee, Omaha World-Herald -- David Hendee * Omaha World-Herald *
"The unassuming title of this atlas does not provide a hint of the diverse richness of its contents. Its abundant maps, its survey of our state's geologic, prehistoric, Native American, and territorial and recent state history, as well as our climate and ecology, are just the beginning of a fact-filled treasure trove. What a wonderful gift to celebrate our state's 150th birthday!"-Paul A. Johnsgard, winner of the National Conservation Achievement Award and author of Those of the Gray Wind: The Sandhill Cranes, New Edition -- Paul A. Johnsgard
