From the publishers, Quindaro Press:
A lot has happened along The Big Divide. From the tribal nations that inhabited this area for centuries to the overland trails that made westward pioneering possible, all the way through Harry Truman and Brown v. Board, the sites along the Missouri-Kansas border cover a wide sweep of history that made not only this region what it is today, but helped shape America in important ways.Combining the practicality of a budget travel guide with page-turning history, The Big Divide is as entertaining as it is useful.
