Connie Mutel, Jean Prior, and Rebecca Conard present Iowa State Parks, published by the Iowa Parks Foundation.   Iowa State Parks commemorates the origins of our state parks and the riches they offer in the present.  The photo essays at the heart of this book feature the artistry of well-known nature photographers such as Carl Kurtz, Brian Gibbs, Don Poggensee, and Larry Stone. The images help tell the stories of Iowa’s state parks, recreation areas, preserves, and forests. A historical overview sets the stage, followed by five essays on key aspects of our park system.

“Iowans now have a great up-to-date pathway to the entire park system. A must for anyone who camps, hikes, boats, fishes, photographs, birds, or in other ways uses these marvelous areas.”—Jim Dinsmore
