The WPA Guide to 1930s Iowa is a panorama of the Hawkeye State as it was fifty years ago. Originally published during the Great Depression, The WPA Guide nevertheless finds much to celebrate in the heartland of America. Nearly three dozen essaysMoreThe WPA Guide to 1930s Iowa is a panorama of the Hawkeye State as it was fifty years ago. Originally published during the Great Depression, The WPA Guide nevertheless finds much to celebrate in the heartland of America. Nearly three dozen essays highlight Iowas demography, economy, and culture, but the heart of the book is a detailed travelers guide, organized as seventeen different tours, that directs 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, fit for the glove compartment or for a relaxing evening at home, is a special invitation to share in the richness and diversity of Iowa and its people.
