Too Tough to Die

Homecoming week is full of activity in Cody, Nebraska, population 155. There’s a parade, a pep rally, the crowning of the homecoming court, a bonfire, a dance and girls’ volleyball games, which are as important and well-supported as the football game itself.

This is Nebraska’s ranch country. There are more cattle than people, and there are really not that many cattle when you consider the number of acres it takes to sustain them.
