Chief Wapello: The Man, The Leader, The Statue looks at the real chief's life and his leadership at the time when the land which became Iowa was transferred out of Native American hands. And it surveys the history of the statue which has become his namesake, standing atop the courthouse for 120 years before a windstorm knocked him from his pedestal, through the major restoration needed before he once again took his place overlooking the Des Moines River Valley. Includes many COLOR illustrations of the chief, the statue, and the memorial park.
