And that poet is Tricia Beem with the CVB in Grand Island--a woman thoroughly devoted to promoting the state of Nebraska. She even did a poetry reading of her works at The Hanlon House B&B in Scottsbluff!

Quite a fine quote. It certainly applies to my experience.

I think Nebraska does not get its just due in the travel world. Experiences like yours speak to that. A poet who writes a lot about Nebraska says it is a place "where the earth breathes and the sky comes down to meet us." Isn't that lovely?

One of my most treasured travel experiences occurred in Nebraska. I was hitch-hiking cross country one August, someone let me out near a cornfield, and I set out my sleeping bag between two rows of tall corn. The leaves met overhead to form a canopy with gaps filled with stars and shooting stars.

The latest edition of Nebraska: Off The Beaten Path is now out and available by Globe Pequot Press ($14.95). The original author was Mary Ethel Emanuel, aka Hannah McNally, who was a friend of mine and has since passed away. I'm the author of the 7th edition.
Ask me what you like of Nebraska. Hopefully, I have an answer, or can send you in the right direction.
