Marci Broyhill, Prairie Poet and Storyteller shares tales of people, places and events that evolved during the western movement. Marci pulls her script from her research and her rural experience of growing up along the Scenic Nebraska Outlaw Trail HWY 12. She puts a focus on Nebraska history. Nebraska, where the West begins!
Her narratives include stories of people working the land, including the role women played during the frontier movement. She gives accounts of colorful characters, good and bad, those breaking the law and those trying to maintain justice.
