Mari Sandoz Historical Marker
Ellsworth - Gordon NE 
A Historical Marker with information about Mari Sandoz is located along Highway 27 about 20 miles south of Gordon near the Mari Sandoz grave site and Sandoz apple orchard.
Mari (1901-1966) is arguably the most renowned author of the area. 'Old Jules' (1858-1928), probably the most well know, tells the story of her father's life as a locator and Sheridan County pioneer. If you are interested in area history this is a must read. Other books authored by Mari include 'Cheyenne Autumn', 'Crazy Horse: The Strange Man of the Oglalas', 'Slogum House, and 'These were the Sioux' just to name a few.
