Hot off the Press: THE DRAKE RELAYS

The University of Iowa Press is proud to announce the release of our newest Iowa and the Midwest Experience book, The Drake Relays: America's Athletic Classic, by David Peterson!

Praise for The Drake Relays
"If, as the great sports commentator Heywood Hale Broun has said, 'Sports do not build character. They reveal it,' then here—in the masterful images of David Peterson—is character revealed beautifully, powerfully, fully."—Chris Johns, editor in chief, National Geographic

"When storied history and glimpsed future meet on the Blue Oval every spring, they create an experience too powerful to capture—yet that's just what David Peterson has done. The Drake Relays is an extraordinary mix of performance and place, but mostly, as Peterson says—with both evocative word and striking imagery—it's a love affair."—Beth Wilson, Marketing and Communications, Drake University
