Media Coverage

Chase County, Kansas is a sacred place that has touched the lives of many. We’ve been featured in National Geographic, Smithsonian magazine and the New York Times. You could fill a book with stories of our people, land and history. In fact, somebody did just that: Pick up a copy of William Least Heat-Moon’s critically acclaimed best-seller, PrairyErth: A Deep Map and read about one man’s journey on foot though the Chase County Flint Hills.
