Readers of this blog know that we’re in love with the natural beauty and diversity of the Midwest, and we’re devoted to its human history as well. Many of the books, recipes, and photographs we feature here come from our Bur Oaks Books series and our Bur Oak Guides.
And we’re always looking for new book projects on the natural and cultural history of Iowa and the upper Midwest. If you’ve got a manuscript in the works in this area, please consider the University of Iowa Press as a publisher. You can find more information about what kind of projects we are interested in and proposal guidelines on our website.
