    I imagine it has been discussed at length here, but I picked up "Empire of the Summer Moon" yesterday for the flight from LA to OKC. What a fantastic book and compelling read. I am already mapping out some great backroad exploring in SW Kansas, Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle searching out several of the sites named. I grew up South of Dodge City along the Cimarron River, so much of this territory is familiar, but this book brought it to life once again. If you have an interest in the southern Great Plains, check this book out if you have not as of yet.

    Planning a trip to South Dakota led me to this thread; fantastic photography, at least on the first 50 pages, which is as far as I've gotten so far. Thanks for all the efforts, everyone. If it hasn't been mentioned, PBS has two episodes of Michael Forsberg's Great Plains documentaries available for streaming. Planning to watch them today, once we get the festivities under control.

    Where is that? Looks like the place where Ford LTD's go to die.
