On the Riverfront

Ottumwa, Iowa From Turkey Island to the Mixmaster
A non fiction book by

Ottumwa, Iowa has been a river town from the moment settlers chose the spot along the banks of the Des Moines River in 1844. Islands come and go; water levels rise and fall; floods sweep through; bridges are built, taken down, and rebuilt. The river changes and even moves, but it continues to provide water, food, and fun, supporting industry and transportation - and remaining the heart of the community.
