The 2003 conference of the Mari Sandoz Heritage Society will be our first gathering at the new Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center on the campus of Chadron State College - nestled in the beautiful Pine Ridge region of northwest Nebraska.
The Center is a rich source of artifacts and papers on the life and writings of Sandoz and the Sandhills region of the Great Plains; hence, the focus on Sandoz's life.
Mari Sandoz was also a tireless advocate of the West and of women writing about the West. It is fitting to inaugurate the Center with a discussion of the lives of Western men and women.
We welcome papers by academics and anyone else interested in the Great Plains.
By January 15, 2003 send a one-page proposal, including title, summary, bibliography and short vita to the address below.
