Omaha, Nebraska, is a laid-back city in America's heartland. In the nineteenth century, however, it had a very different reputation. Omaha grew from a speculative scheme in 1854 to a booming city. Along the way there were scores of great stories. Famous, and not so famous, episodes in Omaha history are recounted, all with a deep grounding in documented fact. From the founding of Omaha City in 1854 to the Trans-Mississippi & International Exposition and Indian Congress of 1898, each episode is told in a highly readable style. The remarkable cast of characters range from gamblers and prostitutes to national figures such as George Frances Train, Buffalo Bill Cody and Ponca Chief Standing Bear. This book will stand as a classic account of Omaha history
