Description

The captivating landscapes of America's heartland offer an inviting escape from the everyday in Indiana Across the Land. Although a road trip from the shores of Lake Michigan to the Ohio River could be accomplished in only six hours, photographers Lee Mandrell and DeeDee Niederhouse-Mandrell take readers the long way around the Hoosier state, embarking on a breathtaking journey across the seasons, down windswept dunes, through old-growth forests, over burbling creeks and yawning chasms, past icy lighthouses and worn-down barns, and into the southern cypress swamps. More than 140 photographs capture the beauty of the Indiana Dunes National Lake Shore, Ouabache State Park, Turkey Run State Park, Squire Boone Caverns, and many other landmarks and natural wonders, both well-known and rarely glimpsed.show more

Review quote

"From the lighthouses and beaches of the Lake Michigan shoreline to the waterfalls and caves of the southern reaches of Indiana, Indiana Across the Land takes you on a wonderful journey across our state. Terrific photography of covered bridges, historic barns, state parks, and quaint small towns will all bring a smile to the face of anyone who loves the Hoosier state." -Matt Williams, author of Indiana State Parks "Indiana Across the Land is a delightful collection of photographs capturing the very best sights Indiana has to offer. Images of rural and wild scenes, weatherworn structures, snow-covered landscapes, and colorful caverns display the state's hidden gems in an incomparable and artistic fashion, covering all the seasons while showcasing creative photographic techniques." -Nathan Strange, author of A Guide to the Knobstone Trailshow more
