For many, Nebraska is the flat prairie seen from the interstate. Yet with the Sandhills, bluffs and river valleys, the state has an abundance of riches. The heritage of early settlers is evident. Fort Kearny and Chimney Rock were pioneer harbors. The Fur Trade Museum and the Homestead Monument of America tell of those who came to make a life. Carhenge is a nationally known treasure. The Joslyn Art Museum features world-class art, and the Nebraska National Forest is the largest hand-planted forest in the nation. Native Nebraskan Gretchen Garrison details the places and people that make the Cornhusker State unique.

The research presented in this report provides the basis for the development of a new procedure to be used by the Iowa Department of Transportation and cities and counties in the state to deal with detours. Even though the project initially focused on investigating new tools to determine condition and compensation, the focus was shifted to traffic and the gas tax method to set the basis for the new procedure.

“God bless the United States and God bless New York City” proclaimed a sign as the bus rolled through a small Indiana town. In October 2001, author Bill Markley was traveling by public bus from Pierre, South Dakota, to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, for a Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity celebration. The day Markley left South Dakota began simply enough, but soon tragedy unfolded when a deranged man of Croatian descent slit the throat of a Greyhound bus driver causing an accident and throwing the nation’s bus system into disarray. American Pilgrim is an honest account of life on the bus, the characters on the bus, bus culture, and the mood of the American people—reflective, patriotic, and upbeat. In those challenging days after the attacks on 9/11, everyone struggled to make sense of the world; as Markley worked on this story; it grew beyond the story of a simple 3,000-mile bus trip. He recalls many of his life’s detours, recounting past events at locations the bus traveled through and people associated with those locations—a rambling personal history of people, places, and things. The trip took on new meaning and became a spiritual journey into the country’s past and Markley’s past.

The Profit, Ben Franklin, Momma Grizzly: Oh my!Tea Party fever is sweeping the nation, making Congressional candidates out of average Joes and spreading resentment between the people and the government that serves them. Wherever there's resentment and bitterness, there's Rufus.Join Rufus "Junior" Hickman, Jr., on the campaign trail as he trades in his grass smoking for grassroots barnstorming in the comedic political romp "The Hick Arrives at the Tea Party."Recruited to run as a Tea Party candidate for his uncanny ability to say incomprehensible things in plain English, Rufus hits the gravel to convince the folks of Nebraska's 3rd District that he's the right outlaw to serve their needs which may or may not include the preservation of personal liberty and the legalization of marijuana. But trouble lurks outside the 3rd's unguarded borders: a tearful endorsement from the coattail rider The Profit is threatening to sabotage Rufus' bandwagoning. Will truth prevail? Nope.

Collected here for the first time ever are the surviving eyewitness accounts of the Bozeman's Trail's civilian emigrants: twenty-four diaries written during the journey and nine reminiscences prepared afterward. These accounts describe life on the West's last great emigrant trail, the shortcut from the Platte River Road to the Montana goldfields, from 1863 until 1866, when the route was closed by "Red Cloud's War." Ample introductions, extensive annotation, historical illustrations, and detailed maps enrich this oversized, two-volume compendium.
