Abstract
The state of Nebraska is part of the great plain which stretches west of the Missouri River, gradually rising until it reaches the Rocky mountains. The character of all this country between the river and the mountains is essentially the same throughout its extent: a rolling, alluvial plain, growing gradually more sandy toward the west until it breaks into the white sandhills of western Nebraska and Kansas and eastern Colorado. Prom east to west this plain measures something over five hundred miles; in appearance it resembles the wheat lands of Russia,which fed the continent of Europe for so many years. Like Little Russia it is watered by slow-flowing, muddy rivers, which in midsummer lie low and shrunken, their current split by glistening white sand-bars half overgrown with willows.
