Overview

Roger Welsch is a fierce fan of Nebraska—not just the football team, or the state's famous beef, or its endless sky, or its ferocious and ferociously unpredictable weather but the whole thing. His license plate says capt neb and he means it.
Welsch loves Nebraska as the heart of America's Great Plains. His perception of the state is not always conventional—occasionally it's even abrasive—but he's thought a lot about this place some call "Fly-Over Country" or "The Middle of Nowhere" or even "The End of the Earth." And what he has to say about it makes interesting reading for natives and outsiders alike, for those who love the place and those who would rather travel through hell than make another drive across Nebraska's endless miles.
After writing three dozen books about his other passions—everything from old tractors to dogs, edible wild plants, and sod houses—Welsch finally turns his attention to his first and real passion: his beloved home state.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This new book by Roger Welsch is one that every red-blooded Nebraskan should own—and, if time and blood pressure permit, should read."
— William Kloefkorn, Nebraska State Poet

"Roger Welsch, by far the greatest humorist to ever call Dannebrog home, is indeed a Nebraska treasure. He is gifted; he is very funny; Roger is our Will Rogers."
— Charlie Thone, former Governor of Nebraska
