First published in 1939, "Nebraska: A Guide to the Cornhusker State" was collaboratively written by the Federal Writers' Project (FWP). As part of the Works Project Administration, the FWP gathered together some of the best writers of the era. Collectively, they undertook a nationwide initiative to record America and create a comprehensive guide to their respective states. The wonderful results were a well-written blend of travel guide, ethnography, local history, and cultural document.This guide to the Cornhusker State brought together Nebraska writers such as Weldon Kees, Mari Sandoz, and Loren Eiseley. These respected authors created a remarkable compendium that includes chapters on the state's history, environment, peoples, flora and fauna, government, agriculture and industry, folklore, architecture, art, and literature. Rewarding reading for the armchair traveler and a companion for the tourist, "Nebraska" captures an era and makes accessible to readers information that is not readily accessible outside archives. Alan Boye is a professor of English at Lyndon State College in Vermont. His books include "Holding Stone Hands: On the Trail of the Cheyenne Exodus", available in a Bison Books edition.
