Long before the automobile, Nebraska's Platte River Valley functioned as the Midwest's first interstate  This natural thoroughfare attracted not only pioneers but, within a pair of decades, a number of the nineteenth century's greatest singers.  On hand to describe some of these performances was Willa Cather, who, as an undergraduate English major at the University of Nebraska, found herself critiquing these renowned professionals for the local newspapers.
