A collage of book covers with a map of indiana as the background. Text reads "Indiana History"

When speaking about the people of Indiana, a co-worker once said, "Everything south of Martinsville is Kentucky." To this day I wonder if others think the same, noting how topography shapes a culture or experience. Do scenic hills and valleys produce a cuisine or taste in music or do we get that from family and neighbors? What must it be like to grow up along the Dunes? How different are we from the north and south but always interesting to be Hoosiers!
