“This is a good country –much better in many respects than the Fatherland. The vine-clad hills of the old country are not so rich as the rocky hills of Wabaunsee County.” —Sebastian Nehring, Feiden ancestor, Kansas pioneer
Mark Feiden is a sixth-generation Kansan with pioneer roots in Wabaunsee and Reno counties. Originally from Wichita, Mark began exploring the back roads of Kansas as an alternative to the Turnpike while attending the University of Kansas in Lawrence. What began as a diversion, soon became a lifelong dedication–to the sharing of “this… good country” through photography and other works. In 1997, Mark co-founded The Konza Press in partial fulfillment of this mission. Mark has since coauthored five books about the state.
