Editorial Reviews

Omaha World-Herald
"A light, clever, alternately lowbrow and highbrow, evocative and stunningly gorgeous 144-page photographic celebration of everything good about life in this state. Roiling crimson thunderheads and dangling Rocky Mountain oysters, loving mothers and painted ladies packing six-shooters. This is photography as art, comedy, story, social anthropology, and pep rally. For Nebraskans, it's bound to become a lasting document on why somebody would choose to live here."

— Robert Nelson, Omaha World-Herald

Lincoln Journal Star
"In color photos and homespun humor, Sartore paints a portrait of a state where you can still field a six-man football team, and kids can take their little red wagon to a small-town grocery store without fear. Or where a winning cowboy proudly shows off his missing teeth to pretty young girls, and hairy-chested young men wearing brown bags and yellow beaks strut their stuff at the Wayne Chicken Show."

— Al J. Laukaitis, Lincoln Journal Star

    Received mine as a gift...don't want to part with it, but want to send it to Switzerland as a wedding gift for my husband's niece who now lives in Europe. She grew up in Omaha...and I want her to enjoy the memory of growing up in this great State.
