      Proper nonfiction history books, not historical fiction, about any period, event, area or topic you like. Just well-written, well-researched, informative and interesting books for historians, history students and history enthusiasts. I didn't mean this to be a list of pop history, but I think it's too late now, so you might as well go ahead.   From glaciers to inland seas, from Midcontinent Rift to a cataclysmic meteorite strike, the stuff that Iowa is made of is more than meets the eye. While the state doesn’t have Rocky Mountains like Colorado, or rock formations like Utah, or the Grand Canyon like Arizona, Iowa nevertheless has a fascinating and dynamic geologic past..

      The Driftless Area is a region in southwestern Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, and the extreme northwestern corner of Illinois, of the American region escaped the flattening effects of glaciation during the last ice age and is consequently characterized by steep, forested ridges, deeply carved river valleys, and karst geology .
