Review quote

"If you're looking for fun things to see and do ... close to home ... without blowing your life's savings ... Jessica Nunemaker's just-published guide, Little Indiana: Small Town Destinations, is for you. The 324-page softcover book, published by Quarry Books (an imprint of Indiana University Press) brims with spritely writing and up-to-date info on interesting places to stay, play, shop and eat ... without parking garages, interstates and urban angst." -Lafayette Journal and Courier "As someone who has traveled the state for years, I always enjoy new destinations to visit. Little Indiana is a great resource of the unusual (blueberry cheddar cheese in Cambridge City?) and the hidden spots (shrimp farm, really?) across the state. I can't wait to use it as my guide for future travels." -Carrie Lambert, Indiana Tourism Professional "Jessica Nunemaker has a gift for uncovering hidden gems in small towns across Indiana and bringing each community to life. The amazing stories and photographs in Little Indiana: Small Town Destinations will entice you to explore the Hoosier state and ensure you know the best places to stay, play, eat and shop in each town." -Ken Kosky, Indiana Dunes Tourism Promotions Directorshow more
