The Big Divide
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.
Diane Eickhoff and Aaron Barnhart offer a new way to appreciate local history with The Big Divide, a travel book that chronologically examines historic sites along the Kansas-Missouri border. From pre-history through the Border War, Civil War, and on to the 20th Century, this guide employs point-by-point directions, photos, and maps to explore the region’s rich past.
Aaron Barnhart was from 1997-2012 the television editor of the Kansas City Star. Diane Eickhoff is the author of Revolutionary Heart: The Life of Clarina Nichols and the Pioneering Crusade for Women’s Rights.
