The WPA Guide to 1930s Iowa is a panorama of the Hawkeye State as it was during the Great Depression, but it nevertheless finds much to celebrate in the heartland of America. Nearly three dozen essays highlight Iowa's demography, economy, and culture, but the heart of the book is a detailed traveler's guide, organized as seventeen different tours that direct the reader to communities of particular social and historical interest throughout the state. Rarely has so much information about a place been gathered in a single volume. This unique book is a special invitation to share in the richness and diversity of Iowa and its people
