A Kentucky Journey--The Land and the People. Teacher's Guide.
Kentucky Historical Society, Frankfort.
This guide to the core exhibit of the Kentucky History Center (Frankfort) focuses on the relationship between Kentuckians and the land. The guide extracts text from the exhibit's eight chronological areas and lists environments, displays, and other exhibit features to help students understand the ways people have settled, farmed, mined, and otherwise interacted with the land for the state's 12,000-year history. Although parts of the exhibit include more material than others, interaction with the land is a persistent theme. It is divided into three sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Diagram of 'A Kentucky Journey'"; and (3) "Exhibit Guides" (Area B: First Kentuckians; Area C: Kentucky Frontier; Area D: Antebellum Age; Area E: War and Aftermath; Area F: Continuity and Change; Area G: A New Century; Area H: Depression and War; Area I: Many Sides of Kentucky).
