From the scenic winter scene on our colorful cover, to the trio of spectacular images in our Showcase Shots at the back of the magazine, our January/February 2018 issue is packed with spectacular storytelling and vivid photography reminding you of your Nebraska pride. Here’s a little taste of what you’ll find inside:
Omaha has been staging talented actors since Hollywood’s earliest days. In our 17-page feature, “Henry Fonda and the Playhouse,” we chronicle the stories of more than a dozen Nebraskans who went from Omaha to Hollywood and made it big.
In David City, we learn about native artist Dale Nichols. Though he left home at age 20 and traveled the world, memories of rural David City never left him. In fact, those memories inspired his artwork for the rest of his life.
Writers Jennifer Kocher and Shane Pekny hit the road with staff photographer AJ Dahm and get in line for a statewide tour of classic movie theaters. When the curtain rises, all eyes are on screen.
We get an outsider’s view of what Nebraska means to a native who moved away, then back again, in “There is No Place Like Nebraska.” Then we taste a trio of gluten-free recipes from the Prairie Plate Restaurant in Waverly. And if you got behind on holiday gifts, make it up with this selection of five Sweets for Sweethearts in our Nebraska Products section.
Plus: We will salute Bassett’s patriotic barn, introduce you to Arlo Bray’s heavy metal bull, plant ourselves at Chadron State College’s High Plains Herbarium, and take a virtual tour of the Nebraska State Capitol before quizzing you about the Statehouse in our Nebraska trivia department. We also tell you how to explore the West with our Nebraska Life Motorcoach Tours of Western Nebraska.
Don’t forget to plan your next adventure with our statewide calendar of events, and you’ll discover much more in this keepsake issue. Call us at 800-777-6159 or click the subscribe tab to order Nebraska Life subscriptions for yourself and your loved ones today!
