Destination Indiana: Travels Through Hoosier History by Ray E. Boomhower, Darryl Jones (Photographer)
A richly illustrated guide to some of the most important historical sites in Indiana. Based on Boomhower's regular column by the same name in the magazine Traces of Indiana and Midwestern History, Destination Indiana highlights many of the beautiful and fascinating public historic sites throughout Indiana and the people who brought these places prominence. Boomhower joins forces with Indianapolis photographer Darryl Jones to bring to life 25 sites as diverse as the James Whitcomb Riley home, the Indiana Medical History Museum, New Harmony, T. C. Steele State Historic Site, and the General Lew Wallace Study.
Frontier Indiana Frontier Indiana by Andrew R. L. Cayton
This lively history of the frontier period in Indiana puts the focus on people, how they lived and what motivated them. Here are the stories of Sieur de Vincennes, John Frances Hamtramck, Little Turtle, Anna Tuthill Symmes Harrison, Tenskwatawa and Calvin Fletcher along with many other early Hoosiers.
A Pictorial History of Indiana A Pictorial History of Indiana by Dwight W. Hoover
A Pictorial History of Indiana portrays the richness of Indiana's heritage: the beauty of the landscape, the pioneer and Revolutionary period and early statehood days, the exploits of George Rogers Clark, and the earliest settlements. Hundreds of personal, candid photographs--a veritable family album--show the participation of Hoosiers in the Civil War and two world wars, and the gradual growth of towns and cities, stores, and factories. A memorable account of places, events, and individual Hoosiers, both the famous and the unknown, who have made Indiana a state of distinction.
Railroads of Indiana Railroads of Indiana by Richard S. Simons and Francis Parker
Historic lines, train disasters, personalities -- the first ever overall history and reference on the railroads in Indiana from 1838 to the present. The first steam train ride in Indiana took place on November 29, 1838, when Governor James Wallace and a group of fellow Hoosiers inaugurated service along fifteen miles of track on the state-financed Madison & Indianapolis Railroad. But the English locomotive in use for that historic ride actually belonged to a Kentucky company. It was hastily borrowed when the M & I's own first locomotive was lost at sea during transport.
Ghost Railroads of Indiana Ghost Railroads of Indiana by Elmer Griffith Sulzer
This study of the abandoned railroads of Indiana quickly proves itself the serious student of railroading. Packed with hundreds of photographs, maps, charts, and four-color by Norman C. Miller, Ghost Railroads of Indiana provides much more than a simple enumeration of track closings. This book of photographs and facts about the rail lines that vanished from the Indiana landscape between 1854 and 1968 is for all who treasure Indiana's railroad heritage.
