Solomon Butcher chronicled the lives of the pioneers who inhabited turn-of-the-century Nebraska, collecting their stories and capturing their images on film. This book interweaves those pioneer tales, the story of Butcher's own life, and his evocative photos, to bring to life the constant winds and locust swarms, the outlaws and the settlers, and the sod houses of early Nebraska.

PW praised this combination of biography and social history, commenting that Butcher's images of "careworn, unsmiling prairie families squinting into the sun outside their 'soddies' speak volumes about their hard lives." Ages 10-up.
