This blog will relate discoveries made as I explore and study the Midwest. It will feature places I visited in pursuit of corn stories, but will also follow other threads of history, travel, and culture in the Heartland. For the remarkable tales of corn and its importance in the world and U.S., check out the book, Midwest Maize: How Corn Shaped the U.S. Heartland. I hope you'll consider buying it.
