General Interest Article
Many of us are interested in the landscape around us. We ask: Why is this hill so steep or why is that valley so wide? Why does my garden's soil have so much clay? Why does Iowa have no mountains' Landforms of Iowa should capture a broad audience of teachers, students, agriculturalists of all sorts, historians, homemakers, naturalists, botanists, biologists, foresters, geographers, civil engineers, as well as geologists and pedologists-in short, just about any Iowan who has ever wondered how and when the landscape at his or her doorstep or outside the car window was fashioned. Its stated purposes are "to awaken an interest in Iowa's landscapes and to develop an awareness of their diversity." It should succeed on both counts.
