2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Michelle Pettit VINE VOICE on June 9, 2004
Format: Library Binding
I think it is important that books present correct information -- kids use these books for reports; and everyone uses them for knowledge.
page 7 -- a photo of the Mississippi River from the hills near the foot of Main Street in McGregor, Iowa -- is incorrectly identified as "The Des Moines River" I wished that authors and editors would verify and know that what they present is correct.
I am happy to see the author writes about the Driftless area in Northeast Iowa -- a place of hills, valleys, and ridges -- a beautiful area called the Little Switzerland of Iowa
Overall this is a beautiful book with beautiful pictures and a nice look at the state.
-- I think it would be relevant in the list of famous Iowans in history to mention the Ringlings (four of the Ringling brothers were born in McGregor and the family lived here for 12 years, doing their first childhood "Pin and Penny circus" in McGregor) The Ringlings are important in the history of this country and Iowa should be proud of their past here.
the author does a nice job -- however I often wonder why publishers don't have someone familiar or from the state be the writer of that state's information. There is much to be learned from actually being there. Yes, I do have what may be considered as more regard for my particular place in the world -- but being here I also know what I'm referring to. If you really want to know what our state of Iowa is like don't accept the cliches or the info you may get from unreliable sources...find a source that knows and has been here or lives here.
