Nebrasaka

I grew up in Cozad; the founder's son was the famous artist Robert Henri.

Overton isn't too far from Cozad, they are in the same county. I hope there are more Nebraska pictures! I've been waiting for some to show up - and no, Omaha doesn't count.

The Homesman

I traveled through Nebraska 10 years ago, mostly because of "The Homesman," a great novel by Glendon Swarthout about pioneer life there around 1855 and the hardships endured by women. I'm glad I did it is all I can say.

More about Nebraska

If you want to know more about Nebraska read The Son of the Gambling Man by Sandoz. It is about the founding of Cozad. Willa Cather's books O`Pioneers and My Antonia will give you an insight to early life in Nebraska.

Seeing Nebraska

We live in Indiana with family on the west coast so we drive through Nebraska a lot. The last few years we have driven all the across the state on U.S. 30. It is very relaxing and well worth it. We do like the campgrounds.

Groceries.

I like the sign: GROCERIES [period]

Overton

Cool pic! This way I'm dreaming about shops from Mark Twain's "Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Nebraska

Butcher took countless photos in Nebraska during his time there. And I'd love to see more!

For more about this particular photo, you can go here.

And the Library of Congress has a ton of Butcher photos here.

Can you tell my family's from Nebraska?
