Off The Beaten Path: Iowa by Lori Erickson


If anyone ever says to you that Iowa is boring and has nothing exciting or unique to see, then make sure they check out this book.  Off The Beaten Path: Iowa covers our state from river to river and north to south describing all the wonderful things that are hidden off the main roads but are still well worth the time to go see.  It describes such places as the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum in Burr Oak, the Garden Sanctuary for Butterflies at Bellevue State Park, the Rathbun State Fish Hatchery near Rathbun Lake, and the world’s largest anatomically correct bull Albert the Bull in Audubon, just to name a few.  It features such local favorites as the Hobo Museum and the Grotto of the Redemption.  This is a perfect book for anyone wanting to explore Iowa for a day trip or long weekend, as well as anyone just wanting to learn more about all the unique places of our state.
