“Less Traveled Roads”
by Al Guenther

Morton-James Public Library
The public is invited to view the exhibit during regular library hours.
Al Guenther, along with his wife and family, currently lives in retirement on the small centurion family ranch raising all natural cattle and hay.
A retired Nebraska school teacher, Al often challenged his students concerning their perspective of Nebraska and to them what Nebraska represented. To his dismay, many supported the often stated perspective that Nebraska was a fly over state.
Al, on the other hand holds an entirely different perspective. He believes Nebraska is a beautiful state. He is especially partial to rural Nebraska, its small communities, its small sustainable family farms, its wildlife, its history and most importantly the pursuit of public policy to enhance that beauty and its people who choose to live there. To that end, Al often invited his students to get off interstate 80 and travel the “less travelled roads” of Nebraska and introduce themselves to a beauty never imagined.
The exhibit “Less Traveled Roads” is a combination of pictures and stories of Nebraska rural roads.
