Introduction Stew Magnuson is the author of The Last American Highway: A Journey Through Time Down U.S. Route 83: The Dakotas and the second edition: Nebraska-Kansas-Oklahoma. He also penned The Death of Raymond Yellow Thunder: And Other True Stories from the Nebraska-Pine Ridge Border Towns, published by Texas Tech University Press, and winner of the 2009 Nebraska nonfiction book of the year. More recently, he wrote, Wounded Knee 1973: Still Bleeding published by Now & Then Reader. Highway 83 runs 1,885 miles from the Canadian border to Brownsville at the southern-most tip of Texas, and passes through North Dakota, South Dakota, the Rosebud Reservation, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. Very little of it is spoiled by soulless four-lane Interstates. As unique as this road is, The Highway 83 Chronicles blog isn't devoted to asphalt, but rather the peoples, cultures, natural history and human history found along the way.
