Prairie Fire Newspaper went on hiatus after the publication of the September 2015 issue. It may return one of these days but until then we will continue to host all of our archived content for your reading pleasure. Many of the articles have held up well over the years. Please contact us if you have any questions, thoughts, or an interest in helping return Prairie Fire to production. We can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you to all our readers, contributors, and supporters - the quality of Prairie Fire was a reflection of how many people it touched (touches).

Julie Myers grew up on her grandfather’s farm in southeastern Nebraska, moving to North Platte later in life to practice law. She spent many happy years working and traveling in the Sand Hills. She wishes everyone could float down the Niobrara River, sneak through the grass and watch thousands of sandhill cranes lift off the Platte, and stare open-mouthed at the blue-legged water birds of the Crescent Lake National Wildlife Refuge. She lives now in Iowa with her husband and three cats.
