BOOK INSPIRES ART GALLERY

Travelers on Interstate-70 between Topeka and Junction City will be pleased to find in Paxico the Prairie Ghost, a gallery of native art inspired by a book.

The name of the gallery is drawn from Prairie Ghost: Pronghorn and Human Interaction in Early America, written by Richard McCabe and published by the University Press of Colorado in 2004. A major contribution to ethnozoological literature, the book has been praised for its unique reporting on the prehistorical and historical relationships of Native People and wildlife.

The gallery carries a wide selection of Native American and wildlife art, pottery, hand-painted silk ties and scarves, notecards, bronzes, decorative decoys, and oh yes, books.

Before you visit, you can take a look at the website at http://www.prairieghostgallery.com/index.html

And books, too!
