    Although I approached this book with trepidation because it looks and feels like a textbook the prose flows uickly and well Its 39 chapters range from the 1720 defeat of the Villasur Expedition by the Otoes and the Pawnees to the blizzard of 1888 to the Kearney Arch in 2005 Stories of memorable people like William Jennings Bryan the Abbott Sisters Malcolm X Willa Cather and General John J Pershing are included in this book Of course no history of Nebraska would be complete without a chapter called The University of Nebraska Football Champions which details the careers of Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne The reader will find interesting and historic information about this politically conservative yet also populist state in the middle of the US This is the April 2018 selection of the Willa Cather Book Club
