6 Books Vying For Great Plains Book Prize



Bookmark and Share

Books about Texas, South Dakota and Cheyenne and Cherokee Indians are among the six finalists chosen for the Great Plains Distinguished Book Prize.

A panel of judges from The Center for Great Plains Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln chose the finalists, and the winner of the $5,000 cash prize will be announced May 2.

The author will be invited to travel to UNL to present a lecture on the topic of the book. Only first-edition, full-length, nonfiction books published and copyrighted in 2011 were evaluated for the award.

Nominations were made by publishers or authors.

For more information and short descriptions of the books, contact the Center for Great Plains Studies at 402-472-3082 or visit its website, www.unl.edu/plains
