From its birth as interdependent towns on the Missouri River frontier to its emergence as a metropolis straddling two states, Omaha–Council Bluffs has been one of the great urban construction projects in the nation’s history. Upstream Metropolis provides the first comprehensive history of this unique urban region that ranks 60th among the 370 major metropolitan areas in the United States. Drawing on local newspapers and historical archives, the authors deliver an anecdote-rich account of how and why a large metropolitan area developed in this spot. They also explain why it grew so big—and no bigger—but could never have remained two small towns. Upstream Metropolis is an urban biography of the highest order, tracing the lives of two cities, which though divided by a river, the problems of a state line, and inevitable rivalry, have always been inextricably linked. This discussion moves from the freewheeling frontier days to the times of farming and railroads, examining influences such as the populist movement, the meatpacking industry, immigration, and ethnicity.  The highly readable result is a pioneering contribution to the history of urbanization in America.

Annoyingly introductory, this book has so much more potential than it lets on. The authors tend to grossly oversimplify and homogenize Omaha history, accidentally painting the city in an unremarkable, uninteresting light. It is fine as a sterile accounting of what happened. However, in reality, Omaha's history is much bigger, broader and more poignant than this book says. I'm concerned it will leave the reader completely anesthetized and apathetic about the city's history, but I hope otherwise. Please consider rewriting this book to include ALL of Omaha's history, and not just the parts that are conveniently summarized here.

Too many political facts without much color. Not enough information about the people, neighborhoods, landmarks, businesses, craftsmen, merchants, families, restaurants, culture, and traditions that are unique to Omaha. Dry reading; some good information, detailed and accurate, but mostly a very accurate rehashing of the same tired facts that seem to appear in every book on Omaha history. If I wasn't born and raised in Omaha, with family roots in Omaha dating back to 1868, I'm not sure this book would have given me an accurate idea of the city and what it is, and was, really like.

This book is well researched, well written, and very readable. It's an update on Larsen's earlier book, "The Gate City."

A little more on Council Bluffs would've been welcome, but pretty good reference ... sammy

While the book isn't quite a masterpiece it represents a tremendous effort (made by the authors) to present a digestible history of a fairly interesting city - Omaha. In my opinion, the first half of the book - concerning the early history of the city and its gambling halls, prostitution, mob justice, boom years, etc. - is more interesting than the authors' tale of the second half - concerning the modern era. The first half felt more like a story, whereas the second half seemed more a recap of various old news stories - attempting to cram a lot in to be comprehensive, but a little too scattered and not quite possessing the same soul. However, I feel this is an excellent text and will tell 99.99% of its readers as much as they'd ever want to know about Omaha, all in an enjoyable way. If the history of Omaha interests you this is THE book to buy.
