From the Publisher:
Whye presents 112 full-color photographs of this bustling city nestled in the heartland of America. The images convey Omaha's unmistakable cityscapes, large and small, as well as the surrounding fertile agricultural lands. Old-timers and newcomers will see Omaha in original ways, as Whye's photographs convey clear impressions of distinct neighborhoods, public spaces, and fabulous architecture found throughout the city. Festively lit downtown street scenes are counterbalanced by tranquil farmlands. Stunning sunsets share the pages with rich interiors. Photos of throngs of happy, celebrating Omahans are offset by close-ups of the serene greenery found in a quiet nature preserve.A warm, lively foreword by the photographer sets the stage. Informative captions complement the photographs throughout the book, providing enough detail that even casual readers will learn something of Omaha's fascinating history and contemporary culture while simply browsing through the photos.
