Roger Welsch is a fierce fan of Nebraskanot 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 conventionaloccasionally it's even abrasivebut 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 passionseverything from old tractors to dogs, edible wild plants, and sod housesWelsch finally turns his attention to his first and real passion: his beloved home state.
