Praise for the Off the Beaten Path® series

 

 “For the traveler who enjoys the special, the unusual, and the unexpected.”
—The Traveler newsletter

 

 “Globe Pequot publishes some fine   books in its ‘Off the Beaten Path’ series. . . . These books cover states that no other publisher covers  thoroughly.”
—Union-Tribune (San Diego, CA)

 

From the Back Cover

Tired of the same old tourist traps? Whether you’re a visitor or a local looking for something different, let Nebraska Off the Beaten Path show you the Cornhusker State you never knew existed. Set yourself down on the world’s largest porch swing, in Hebron—actually in the city park, but big enough to fit twenty adults; “Czech” out the outstanding collection of dolls, dishes, laces, and costumes at the Czech Museum in Wilber; or hide out for a bit in Robber’s Cave near Winnebago, where river pirates and the notorious James gang once hid out. So if you’ve “been there, done that” one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.

I bought this book hoping it provided a good variety of things to see and do in a round-the-state visit to Nebraska next year. Bingo! It is perfect. I have highlighted, written in the margins, dog-eared the pages, and written note pages from this book's recommendations. It is exactly what I was looking for. It gives one or more short paragraphs of stops for Oregon Trail, Morman Trail, Lincoln Highway, geographic specialties, historical points and museums, organized as a counter-clockwise road trip of Nebraska. A very good read and helpful travel planner.

Format: Paperback
I've just returned from a meandering trip through America's very own "Empty Quarter," the High Plains, which corresponds very roughly to those imaginary lines on the earth, the area between the 100th and 105th meridian. "No one" lives there, or so it seems at times, though those who actually do might take exception (or pride?) to that remark. It is the area that John Wesley Powell said was unsuitable for agriculture - the prairie sod should never have been broken by the plow - as was chronicled in Wallace Stegner's excellent Beyond the Hundredth Meridian: John Wesley Powell and the Second Opening of the West. Folks still manage, mainly, to eke out a living; a few prosper. Some still farm, continuing the drain on the Oglala aquifer; there are the very sad cattle feedlots; there are the free-range cattle in the Nebraska Sand Hills; and there is still the impressive testimony to America's industrial and technological know-how: the massive rail switching yard at North Platte which handles the transcontinental train traffic. There are also a lot of dead and dying towns, and abandoned homes on the farm and in the small towns. It is the heart of the "fly-over" zone to many; for a few, the life and the land there are fascinating. In setting off from Albuquerque, I thought North Dakota might be the apogee of the trip; fortunately fellow Amazon reviewer Mike Peterson brought this book along and it changed the trajectory of the trip. Nebraska, all by itself, was sufficient.

This was my first introduction to "Off the Beaten Path" guides; they appear to have them on most if not all states. Diana Meyer authored our Nebraska guide; it is the 7th edition, published in 2010.

This information is way out of date. The best I can tell the info would have been current in the mid to early 90's. I don't know what they do to make a new edition, but it is certainly not update the info!
