A new Atlas of the Great Plains is being published by the University of Nebraska Press. It promises to be a very comprehensive look at the region as a whole. It will include Canada as well, so as to recognize the full extent of the natural boundaries of the Great Plains, which do not, of course, respect the arbitrary boundaries of man.
It will be full of maps and photos, and it should “drop” sometime this summer. My hope is that it can help generate some interest in the region as a whole, as an overlooked place of beauty, and one that is ripe for new recreation opportunities.
