From WNET:

"'History with Herb Hake' traces the historical development of the Great Plains and the Prairies.  Each program is set in different locale with four programs taking place in Illinois, four in Ohio, four in Iowa, three each in Missouri and Indiana, two in Minnesota, and one each in North Dakota, Michigan, West Virginia, Nebraska, Kansas, and Wisconsin.  In each program, Mr. Hake chooses a site of historic significance which he discusses in detail using photographs, books, songs, and his own cartoons for illustration.  Dr. Daryl Pendergraft of Iowa State Teachers College served as historical consultant."
