Publisher's Description

Amazing Iowa offers a rare glimpse into unusual and sometimes bizarre people and events in Iowa's history. Reading like the Hawkeye State's own Ripley's® Believe It or Not, this book explores hundreds of incredible stories, facts, and tidbits of human interest. It contains photographs, quizzes, trivia, stories, recipes, lists, song lyrics, and more. Within these pages, you'll find:

  • Eddie Rickenbacker, who raced cars with a bat's heart tied to his middle finger.
  • The world's best marinade for Iowa pork chops.
  • Jesse James's first train robbery, the first ever attempted on a moving train.
  • Lyrics of the "Iowa Corn Song".
  • The longest beard length ever recorded.
  • Heroes of the past (TV's first Superman was born in Iowa).
  • Heroes of the future (Captain James T. Kirk will be born in Iowa).
  • Ellen Church of Cresco, the first airline stewardess in the country.
