Format: Hardcover
Now in an updated and revised third edition, Iowa Past To Present: The People And The Prairie by Dorothy Schwieder, Thomas Morain, and Lynn Nielsenis a textbook-style reference and guide to the history of the state of Iowa, from the American Indians who were the first people to live there to pioneers, the toll of the civil war, Iowa farm life, and more. The emphasis of Iowa Past to Present lies with Iowa history and life before World War I; subsequent events are treated relatively briefly in comparison. Collaboratively written by Dorothy Schwieder (Trustee of the Iowa State Historical Society); Thomas J. Morain (Vice Provost for Academic Affairs for Liberal Arts, Graceland University, Lamoni, Iowa); and Lynn E. Nielsen (Professor of Education, Department of Curriculum & Instruction, University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls) Iowa Past To Present is an informative, fascinating history and enthusiastically recommended students of Iowan history, events, and personalities.
