150th Anniversary of the Chisholm Trail

One-hundred fifty years ago, Kansas was an undeveloped, rugged and often lawless place -- full of settlers, gamblers and gunslingers. Kansas was the very epicenter of the Wild West. As Commentator Rex Buchanan tells us, the state was also full of another iconic symbol: cowboys.    


Commentator Rex Buchanan is a writer, traveler and director emeritus of the Kansas Geological Survey. His home on the range is right here in Lawrence.
