During the Great Depression of the 1930s thousands of writers were hired by the Works Project Administration to create hundreds of guidebooks on all of the states in the U.S. These volumes that were produced became known as theAmerican Guide Series. This series has been described as the biggest, fastest and most original research job in the history of the world.No library collection in Kansas would be complete without a copy of Kansas: A Guide To The Sunflower State.The timbered sections of eastern Kansas abounded with bear and panther, with timber wolf, deer, otter, heaver, and smaller fur-bearing animals. Farther west, prairie wolves, wild horses and vast herds of buffalo ranged the High Plains.
