The Border Region of Missouri and Kansas is one of the country’s premier destinations for history travel, but until Diane and I logged 4,000 miles visiting the sites in this guide, even we had no idea how varied and compelling that history is. After putting thousands of these guides into people's hands (and glove compartments), we've brought it out in a fully updated second edition.
Historian praise: “This work goes beyond what a reader may expect from a travel guide … Eickhoff and Barnhart provide the guide user with a wide variety of sites that serves to illustrate the unique nature of the conflict in Kansas-Missouri border region.” — Jake Struhelka in Emerging Civil War
Traveler praise: “Read this book and you’ll discover a region rich in history and culture that you might not have otherwise expected. I was pleasantly surprised at how much there really is here.” — J.A., top 1000 Amazon reviewer, Texas
