The 8 Wonders of Kansas Guidebook by Marci Penner showcases 216 diverse places across Kansas that were featured as entries in the Kansas Sampler Foundation’s 8 Wonders of Kansas contests.

Photographer Harland Schuster went to all 216 places in 2010 to get updated photos. Due to the quality photographs and design, the spiral-bound book serves as a combination coffee table book and guidebook. Each entry includes a description, directions, hours, and contacts.

The one-time 8 Wonders of Kansas contests took place from 2007-2010. Twenty-four finalists were selected for each of the categories of Architecture, Art, Commerce, Cuisine, Customs, Geography, History, and People. There was also an overall category. The public voted for the top 8 in each category. All 24 finalists appear in the guidebook.

The book also includes information about the 38 soda fountains featured in the 8 Wonders of Kansas Customs contest.
