KANSAS! Magazine

The premier lifestyle publication of the Sunflower State, we celebrate our state's people, places and wide-open spaces since 1945. 


In this issue, we go in search of our state's legends and lore - sending two of our writers to spend the night at Atchison's most haunted locations. Plus, learn how early Kansas inventors and aviators put the fear into unsuspecting farmers and locals. In the cover story, we talk with five communities that celebrate Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead, a popular Mexican holiday that celebrates loved ones no longer here.
