Product Details
Nebraska is America�s 37th State. In Omaha, one of the state�s most visited tourist attractions is the Henry Doorly Zoo. Here, spectacular exhibits including desert landscapes, gorillas, polar bears & rainforests. Father Edward Flanagan believed that �there is no such thing as a bad boy�. In 1917 he created Boys Town (now Boys & Girls Town) as a unique refuge that offers help, hope & healing to troubled children. Among the corn & soybeans of rural Nebraska, The Art Farm is a summer �artist in residency� program where individual creativity abounds and prairie sculptures like �Corn Boy� are the result. An important part of America�s westward expansion was the Homestead Act of 1862 & visitors can gain an understanding of how the Act changed the lives of all Americans at the Homestead National Monument of America. Painter & sculptor Thomas Palmerton has always been fascinated by the Missouri River & its early explorers and realized his dream when he was chosen to create a bronze statue for the Lewis & Clark Center. Make wagon wheels the old fashioned way with a father & son team at Jensen�s Buggy & Wheel Shop & visit Shepherd�s Dairy where sheep�s milk is used to create handcrafted lotions & soaps. One of the businesses in Arthur (population 129) is Marshall Custom Hats. The retired cowboy/owner demonstrates a few of the steps that go into creating a custom, hand-made cowboy hat. In Sidney, Cabela�s is the largest employer in the western part of the state. The organization became the salvation for a rural community that lost 80% of its jobs in the late 70s. In Harrison, the �Coffee Burger�. Nearby Carhenge, is a unique replica of Stonehenge made entirely from scrap automobiles. Over the years the site has grown to include other automotive works of art & sees well over a million visitors a year.

Filmed in 2005 by directors Jim and Kelly Watt.
