YR 2004 SN 0803247877 9780803247871 AB "Wishart and the staff of the Center for Great Plains Studies have compiled a wide-ranging (pun intended) encyclopedia of this important region. Their objective was to 'give definition to a region that has traditionally been poorly defined, ' and they have admirably succeeded. Twenty-seven thematic chapters (agriculture, folkways, Native Americans, water) offer overview essays followed by alphabetically arranged entries. Many map and black-and-white photographs supplement the text."--"Reference that rocks," American Libraries, May 2005.
