“The Hills of Peru: a geographical and historical sketch” was published in 1911 by Louise Wilhelmina Mears (Class of 1895) – Head of the Geography Department of the Nebraska State Normal School. It’s a wonderful little book to read and gives a lot of descriptions about Peru and Nemaha County at the turn of the century with some old photos thrown in.
