Like No Other Place: The Sandhills of Nebraska


Like No Other Place: The Sandhills of Nebraska Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covering nearly twenty thousand square miles, the Sandhills of Nebraska is a rich and layered region that is home to one of the most productive ranching areas in the country. In  2008 and 2009, photographer and storyteller David A. Owen traveled through western Nebraska to capture the unconventional beauty of the geography and singular way of life of the residents there. Connecting the everyday activities of the ranchers and residents he encounters to the vast, isolated landscape, Owen provides a fascinating window into this dazzling area of America.

Through Owens fine ear and eye, Like No Other Place takes the reader on a memorable journey into an out-of-the-way destination that is part of a modern American West and yet still organically linked to its past. Owens photographs and stories tell of a remarkable region where history, legend, memory, and reality are all intertwined.

About the Author

David A. Owen is a retired Episcopal minister. His photographs of the Sandhills have been exhibited in Nebraska and Connecticut and were twice featured in Nebraska Life magazine.
