The Indiana Way traces the history of the Hoosier state from prehistoric times through the late twentieth century. The author argues that there had always been a distinctive Indiana way that rejects radical and extreme notions and movements and prefers the comfort and security that comes from a respect for the achievements of the generations that preceded.
