And once you run away from that environment in desperate search for places where more than 40 people gathered at any given time for something other than a bean feed (yes), you do not pick up something called O Pioneers!. A few generations back we landed in Kansas because of the Homestead Act, and there were sod houses involved. Do you know how incredibly boring Kansas History class was? There was like a month of sod houses, because no one wanted to talk about pre-Civil War terrorism or massacres of the natives or any of the actual interesting, controversial stuff, so sod houses it is!
