In this episode of the Best of Living in Iowa, we’ll revisit Rusty the dog who was injured in a mowing accident, see a matchstick artist whose work has been displayed around the world and listen to Manchester-born singer-song-writer Susan Werner who has been compared to the likes of George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Billy Strayhorn.



For 16 seasons, Living in Iowa was an omnibus television series that illustrated what it meant to be "uniquely Iowan." Through compelling human interest stories, it provided snapshots of Iowans representing every walk of life. As part of its 50th anniversary, Iowa Public Television will revisit this popular series through The Best of Living in Iowa, a weekly program that features stories gathered from the archives of the original series. From this rich treasure trove of stories, viewers will relive moments from the past and be reminded of Iowa's unique heritage.
