Bettendorf: Iowa's Exciting City is the third volume for the Images of America Series by Quad-City authors David R. Collins and Rich Johnson, who, along with Bessie J. Pierce and Bj Elsner, authored Rock Island: All American City, and with Pierce, Moline: City of Mills. Fellow historian and Bettendorf native Mary Louise Speer joins the team of Collins, Elsner, and Johnson for this pictorial overview of a quintessential Iowa community, a city steeped in tales of frontier adventures and pioneer spirit. This volume is offered as an entertaining and insightful look at what makes Bettendorf forever young, forever vibrant, and an exciting place to be, if for just a day or for a lifetime.
