Nebraska: The Cornhusker Stateby Jean Craven (Consultant), Michael Flocker
The name Nebraska comes from the Native American word nebrathka, or "flat water," a reference to the state's broad Platte River. The waters of the Platte have made it possible for Nebraska to develop into an agricultural machine that helps feed the world. Corn may be king here, but the state has also raised a diverse crop of famous Americans, from Willa Cather and Malcolm X to Marlon Brando and Dick Cheney.
