He has a passion for writing and for history. Meet George Hanusa a 40+ year resident of the tiny town of Windsor Heights, Iowa and author of "Out Of The Mud - How a Rural Coal Mining Settlement Became the City of Windsor Heights". What is curious about Windsor Heights (Pop 4,900) is that it sits directly in the center of the Des Moines Metro surrounded by much larger communities. All of that could have been different had the community annexed what is now the City of Clive. Hanusa has written an unvarnished historical account of Windsor Heights complete with lots of photos and stories any lover of small town history will appreciate. The book is available at the Windsor Heights City Hall, the Windsor Heights Hy-Vee, Beaverdale Books and Plain Talk Books and Coffee.
