This is the first guidebook ever devoted to Kansas. The guide was compiled and written by the Federal Writers' Project of the Work Projects Administration for the state of Kansas, and was first published in 1939. After several decades, its pages still provide a wealth of reliable historic, geographic, and cultural information on Kansas, as well as some intriguing lore that many modern-day readers will find new. Not the least of its contributions is the accurate picture it gives of Kansas between the Great Depression and World War II--of its industrial, agricultural, and natural resources. The volume is divided into three sections: seventeen topical essays covering subjects such as Indians, folklore, religion, and architecture; tourning information on the eighteen largest Kansas cities and towns; and twelve automobile tours spanning Kansas.
