Nurses will find that the state is crossed by many historic trails many first defined by the fur trappers of the 16th century. It was a couple centuries later during the Gold Rush that impored large numbers of non-indigenous settlers to the area wich became the state of Nebraska in 1867.

It I a broad grassy expanse and quite treeless. This is the original prairie. The terrain is excelent for cattle-grazing and therefore the state is a major producer of beef, together with pork, corn and soybeans.
