To the casual observer, at first glance, Kansas is mysterious in the ways it is beautiful the endless cornfields may seem subtle and even monotonous to drivers passing through on I-70. Yet Kansas is a statefull of wonder and beauty, and includes everything from woodlands todesert to prairie, a rich tapestry that changes dramatically from seasonto season in an endless play of light and color.Viewers are encouraged to discover the many ways Kansas is full ofheart-piercing beauty in "The Kansas Landscape: Images From Home" by Mark Feiden and Edward C.
