When C.C. Woolworth arrived in Omaha City, Nebraska Territory, it comprised a huge land area which reached north to the British Territories of Canada and encompassed much of the Dakotas, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.This book documents the start of Nebraska Libraries across the entire state. Andrew Carnegie provided gifts of $720,000 to fund sixty-nine libraries across the state of Nebraska. These libraries were built between 1901 and 1922. This book gives the history of each library.
Published in 2005 by J & L Lee Co. 186 pages.

This reprint of his 1857 publication is often considered the first history of Nebraska. This edition is limited to to 1,000 copies and each is individually numbered opposite the title page. 

The large folding map which is folded and bound into the book is considered current to 1857 and shows all existing towns and those thought to be "of any considerable promise," though a few never got beyond the planning stage.
