As an abolitionist stronghold, nineteenth-century Kansas was a battleground for civil rights. Nebraska, hub of the first Transcontinental Railroad, was the gateway to the West. Today, both Kansas and Nebraska are leading breadbasket states, producing crops that feed the nation. This region includes both the largest tallgrass prairie preserve and the most extensive sand dunes in the nation. Notable Nebraskans and Kansans who have left their mark on the nation include Amelia Earhart and Warren Buffet. This book in the LET'S EXPLORE THE STATES series provides information about these two interesting states, from their geography, history, and government to their economy, population demographics, and major cities.
