Iowa: The Hawkeye State by Michael A. Martin

Iowa's golden plains and fertile farmlands support an independent-minded people accustomed to setting and meeting high standards. The state held an early, historic stance against slavery and racism, and its long history of excellence in education is reflected in a high literacy rate. Notable Iowans include legendary actor John Wayne and artist Grant Wood, whose paintings capture the vibrancy of life in the Hawkeye State.
