With the tangled rugged beauty of the Ozark Plateau beginning in southeast Kansas, most people are surprised to discover the Little Ozarks, where the landscape is full of wooded hills and winding rivers, and includes the towns of Cedar Vale, Sedan and many other southeast Kansas county towns. You are likely to see buffalo roaming the range, as well as working cattle ranches, or a cowboy on horseback along the the dusty roads. It is a rustic area where the Old West has met the New West. Much of the area looks as it did in the 1800's and the early 1900's when cowboys were driving millions of cattle up from Texas. Back then Kansas had two things no other state could offer, grass and railroads. There are beautiful countryside vistas, history filled museums and historic buildings. For the outdoor sportsman there is fishing and hunting. You'll find lots of wildlife, with turkey, quail and deer which are often seen in the countryside.
