On the cover:
“The Eternal Indian,” a 48-foot sculpture by Lorado Taft, on the bluffs above the Rock River near Oregon, Illinois, was unveiled in Lowden State Park in 1911. Sometimes called the Black Hawk statue, this landmark in northwest Illinois pays tribute to the First Nations who called Illinois their home. Photo by William Furry.
