My Kansas

A Photographic Journey Across the Sunflower State

Spending time in this uniquely compelling country creates an almost irresistible craving to capture it.

Their best work comes together to tell the stories of Kansas--places that inspire awe as well as quiet admiration, people who celebrate their heritage and their communities, and towns that just about sparkle with friendliness and spirit. $24.95 plus shipping and handling; order from www.mwlcatalog.com or call (800) 678-5752.
