Geography and climate

According to itypetravel, Nebraska is located on the Great Plains west of the Missouri River. The area of ​​Nebraska is 200.3 thousand km². The state is bordered to the north by South Dakota, to the west by Colorado and Wyoming, to the south by Kansas, and to the east by Iowa and Missouri.

The surface is predominantly hilly-plain; gradually rises to the west. In the extreme west – the spurs of the Rocky Mountains (altitude up to 1654 m). On the slopes of the mountains there are coniferous forests. In the central part there is a vast area of ​​sand hills (Sand Hills region). Temperate continental climate with hot summers and cold winters, with frequent and severe droughts. Average monthly temperatures are from -5 to 24 °C, precipitation is 450-700 mm per year. However, the state has abundant and accessible groundwater resources. The most important minerals are: oil (discovered in 1939), sand, gravel.


The first traces of human life in the state date back to the 9th millennium BC. e. Before the advent of Europeans, the Pawnee, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Omaha, and Sioux tribes lived here.

The first Europeans were the Spaniards from the detachment of Pedro de Villasur (1720). During the colonial period, Spain, France and Great Britain fought for the possession of this region. In 1763-1801, Nebraska was part of the Spanish possessions, then was briefly in the hands of France, in 1803 it was acquired by the United States during the purchase of Louisiana.

Nebraska began to be explored by the expeditions of Lewis and Clark (1805), Zebulon Montgomery Pike (1806) and Stephen Harriman Long (1820). Long’s report did not contribute to the creation of a favorable image of the Great Plains among the settlers, so their first streams preferred only to cross this area of ​​​​the so-called. “Great American Desert” (Great American Desert), moving further west. The Oregon Trail and the Mormon Trail passed through here.

In 1804–05, Nebraska was part of the Indiana Territory, and in 1805–12, it was part of the Louisiana Territory. In 1813-21, it was part of the Missouri Territory, and after the formation of the state of Missouri, Nebraska became part of the area known as Indian lands (Indian Territory, Indian country), the boundaries of which were determined only in 1834. The new territory was formed under the Kansas-Nebraska Law (Kansas-Nebraska Act) (1854). Nebraska joined the US as a state only in 1867.

At the end of the XIX century. Nebraska’s political life was dominated by the Populist Party, and the same period saw the rise of agriculture, which continued until the Great Depression. As a result of the economic recession, droughts and dust storms, the state lost up to 4.5% of the population, a trend that continued until the 1950s. The revival of the economy was helped by military orders for food supplies during the Second World War.

Main crops: corn, soybeans, seeded grasses, wheat; on irrigated lands in the west, sugar beets. In animal husbandry, the meat direction predominates.
