The author draws upon his experiences as a devoted "Huskerviller," and the insights of over 500 other Husker fans who shared their ideas through interviews, questionnaires, and Internet communication, to compose a story that highlights how the culture, history, and geography of Nebraska are intimately embedded in fans' devotion to the Cornhuskers. The book features photographs and an extensive bibliography, while an appendix provides 16 essays written by devoted Husker fans.
