The second edition of The Complete Roadside Guide to Nebraska represents a major enlargement and revision of the first edition, making this the most comprehensive guide to the state ever written. The book covers over twelve thousand miles in all ninety-three counties of the “state where the West begins.” Here readers can become acquainted with numerous folklore tales and discover the locations of thousands of historical sites, burials, pioneer roads, museums, and other wonders of the Cornhusker State.

Alan Boye is a Nebraska native with an affinity for back roads and offbeat historic moments. He is a professor of English at Lyndon State College in Vermont and the author of Tales from the Journey of the Dead: Ten Thousand Years on an American Desert (Nebraska 2006) and Holding Stone Hands: On the Trail of the Cheyenne Exodus, available in a Bison Books edition. Ron Hansen, a Nebraska native, is the author of Isn't It Romantic? and Hitler's Niece. Wright Morris was a native Nebraskan and the author of Field of Vision and Plains Song, both winners of the National Book Award.

“If you want to stop and smell the goldenrod in Nebraska, turn to Alan Boye: He should be able to tell you where it grows, why it is there and who planted it. . . . [The Complete Roadside Guide to Nebraska is] a mile-by-mile guide to the sights, history and oddities to be found or learned about along almost every road in Nebraska.”—Gerald Wade, Omaha World-Herald

“If there’s a book that captures the quirky spirit of the original Federal Writers Project guide, this is it. . . . Throughout the book, the author’s opinions and reflections add charm to the entries. . . . Stories, trivia, opinions, back road directions – Boye is an engaging travel companion. He’ll charm you into looking closer at Nebraska.”—Nebraska Life
