AbstractThe "Atlas of Nebraska" is the first atlas published in more than 30 years. The collection chronicles the history of the state with more than 300 original, full-color maps accompanied by extended explanatory test. The atlas explores myriad subjects from Native Americans to settlement patterns, agricultural ventures to employment, and voting records to crime rates, all the way from the eastern metropolitan cities of Omaha and Lincoln to the ranches of the western Sandhills.
