Nebraska

The Cornhusker State perches above Kansas, beneath South Dakota, and is bounded on the east by the Missouri River, which runs through Omaha, Nebraska’s biggest city. Early pioneers rolled through Nebraska in wagon trains, following the Platte River along the Oregon, California, and Mormon Trails. Homesteading was not legal until the land was declared Nebraska Territory in 1854. The land was considered hostile and inhospitable to agriculture. Part of the Great American Desert, Nebraska was a treeless expanse of tall-grass prairie. (The national holiday Arbor Day was started in Nebraska City as a way to entice Nebraskans to plant trees.) Irrigation helped transform the state into some of the richest farm and ranch land in the Great Plains. Today, Nebraska produces about one quarter of the steaks Americans consume. Among the early homesteaders in Nebraska were Germans, Scandinavians, and some 50,000 Czech immigrants. The Germans introduced bierocks (beef and cabbage pastries) to Nebraskans. The Czech settled in towns like Clarkson, Prague, Schuyler, and “the Czech Capital of Nebraska,” Wilber, making their mark on the cuisine and culture of the state.
